How to back up a Samsung Galaxy S2 via Kies
After selecting everything you want to back up click on "Back up" (under the list of items) and you should see your screen look like the shot to the left. This is the programming backing up your phone and can take a while depending on what you have chosen to actually back up. As said above backing up a large collection of music files CAN take a very long time, whilst a few tracks will be nice and quick.
After all the information has been backed up you'll see the a screen like the one to the right with a ticks over the things that you backed up. To find the backed up settings they will be stored in the folder directory that you can see under the list of items (in the example case it was C\Users\Scott\Documents\SamsungKies\GT-19100) and can be used for restore purposes if you need them (i.e. after a factory reset).
