ACER ICONIA TABLET.
I have many spreadsheet files on my tablet, which I wish to backup for safety.
I am not allowed to copy them to my microsd card.
How can I make a safe copy elsewhere ? ( microsd/laptop/cloud )

I assume you have a Google account? If so, upload them to Google Drive. Then if you have a huge aversion to leaving them 'in the cloud' or with Google. Access your Google drive account from your laptop or desktop and save them to your hard drive.

If you have another cloud service, you can upload them to that one and take the same steps.

In your apps drawer you should see an icon like this: drive_icon.png

That's how to access Google drive from your tablet.

Here is an introduction to Google Drive: https://www.google.com/drive/

Scroll all the way to the bottom or in the upper right hand corner at the top and there is a link titled: Using Drive

Take a look there and it will give you an overview.

Let me know if you have more questions. If you can open the spreadsheets on the tablet you should be able to save them as well and choose a location. Just save to the cloud, by using the icon shown above.

Have succeeded in uploading files to G.Drive, but only singly.

Is there a way of batch loading ?

Also in My Drive > settings, there is an option to auto update photos, but will not work when I click on it.

Also if I upload the same file twice, it leaves 2 items and won't overwrite the first file.
