Do you have any important videos that have recorded the life of your family or a wonderful experience with your friend? Do you want to flash a new ROM or factory reset your Samsung Galaxy phone? In any of these cases, your files need to be backed up in order to prevent them from losing. And of course, there are some ways for you to recover the deleted Samsung videos without a backup file. But, whether you succeed or not depends on if the data are overwritten. All is to say, it is safer to save the content on your computer. But we do not intend to do it manually. With the help of some programs, things can be done better and sooner.

You might think that data cannot be lost so easily. Truth is, everyday your valuable files are at risks. Your phone can drop into water; the system might have a failure, and this is more normal for Android phones; system updates can also erase the important information by accident.

Samsung Kies, Android Data Recovery, Android Manager and Mobile Transfer are excellent software apps of different features. However, in a way, they are pretty much alike—each of them can backup Samsung videos with simple steps.

The guide is divided into four parts:

Part One: Backup Videos on Samsung with Samsung Kies

Many Samsung users have heard or used Samsung Kies, which is for computer-phone communication. You can do a backup or retrieve lost contents with it. If you have known how this works, please skip to Part Two.

Step 1. Have Samsung Kies Installed on PC

To begin with, you need to install this software after downloading. Open it and newly-open window is like this. The next thing to do is plugging the handset in so that we can continue. Samsung Kies will detect it automatically. If you have any problem connecting the device, click the button "Troubleshoot connection error" and follow the wizard.
