I am buying my wife a new Samsung Galaxy 10.1 to replace the one she has had for several years. Since these tablets do not have USB ports I was wondering if anyone knows how I would transfer settings, pictures and any saved files from the old unit to the new one.  Thanks for your help and everyone have a Happy Holiday Season !

Samsung has Kies. There's also Airdroid (the one I like). You connect them together via wifi and pass files back and forth. Or move them to a regular computer from one and to the new tablet from there.


As for apps, as long as the same gmail address is used they'll show up under the All tab under My Apps in the Playstore. If any of them were from the Amazon App Store and don't show up in the Playstore, Amazon has those saved as well (under Cloud in the apps list). In both cases it's just a matter of installing them again.


Settings, passwords and those sorts of things are another matter. The way I handle passwords is to use Keepass and Dropbox. Keepass works for Android, Windows and linux. I store the password db in the Dropbox folder (I had tocreate and set this up using Dropsync on Android). That way updates, additions, changes etc are available in all places.


There may be a way to get settings moved, too. But I never bothered trying or looking into it.

No offense, but Kies are really not that stable, especially after the recent update.

I like Airdroid but there's a lot of apps that allow this. Such as, My Backup Pro has a lot of cool features for backing up your data. Just make sure your phones are both connected to the same wifi network when you're doing this.  :bounce:

+1 for AirDroid. The one recurring complaint I've read about MyBackup Pro is that many times there is not enough space for everything you want to back up. I have never used the service, so I can neither confirm nor deny, just warn it's possible.
