The above mentioned method may not help you do an Android full backup. You can try to use FoneLab Android Data Recovery which enables you to backup Android phone data to computer as well as restore lost Android files from the device. Let’s see how it works.

After you have installed the program on your computer, connect your phone with the computer via a USB cable and launch the program.

Enable USB debugging mode on your phone so that the software can detect your device. If the USB debugging mode is opened on your phone already, you will receive a pop-up message on your phone screen asking for permission. If you don’t know how to enable it, you can follow the on-screen instruction from FoneLab. And then tap OK.

Once your Android phone is connected successfully, you will get various file types to choose as you want. Check the box before Select All to back up all data.

Choose Call logs

The program needs to get privilege to scan data from your phone. So you should Allow/Authorize/Grant when it prompts on your Android phone. If there is still no such pop-up window, please click Retry and the program will ask you to install an app to help get access to your phone.

Get Privilege

It will take some time for the scanning process to be finished. Be patient to wait and once it is complete, the scanning result will display by groups on the left column. Check all of them and click Recover to save them to your computer.
