good back up app?

Hi. I'm looking for a good back up app which allows me to back up videos as well as the usual stuff. The ones I've tried say they're not big enough. I was going to get ee clone phone but it has awful reviews. I don't want to spend anything preferably... Am I asking for the moon on a stick?

to backup your pictures, videos and/or music just transfer them to your PC or use Box.com, Google Drive, G+, etc 

 

as for the rest

Of course I'd f gotten that was in settings. I never use my Google mail so if I've been getting updates I won't know. Does that back up video too? It doesn't give any info a tip what it backs up and when

Actually the settings only says it backs up apps etc. Not contacts?

The media files should be copied yourself,do not rely on an app for backing them up.For the contacts,messages,etc use pc companion,it is ok.Or myphone explorer.

In contact app is one very interesting option, "export" :smileysmileywink: This saves all contacts to one .vcf file, or each contact to separate file.

 

For import such files serves another option, "import" :smileysmileywink:

Ok, I Just know I'll forget. I find the back up app that comes with the phone. It says in the text I can back up to cloud but then doesn't give me that option to click?
