Backup Feature in 2.1.0 Update

A while back I put in a suggestion for BN to add a backup feature to the Nook devices and I'm pleasantly suprised to see it appear in the new update for the HD/HD+.  As usual though, there is very little in the way of documentation on what has changed.


Does anyone have any idea just what is backed up and how?  Also, is there anything we'd need to do to backup and restore?  or does it "Just Happen"?

No one at B&N customer support will be able to help. They have no clue what they are doing.

Re: Backup Feature in 2.1.0 Update

Rignes, I don't think this is a B&N feature. I think this is an Android feature related to Goolge Play Apps. So if you search for 'Android App Data Backup' on Google you'll be able to find out more.


You can also test by installing some app from the Nook App Store. Save a bit of data, then doing backup and then uninstalling the app. If you can't get the data back on fresh install of app then it probably means the backup feature is limited to Google Play Apps. I know it's been a feature for Android in the past. So it's probably due to Google Play being added.
