To carry out all the solutions and integration of the novelties, the opinion of the users in forums and social networks is being taken into account. That is why the latest news to come with MIUI 12.5 has to do with the backups on Xiaomi, which had left many complaints about its limitations.
Your files will be more secure on MIUI 12.5
In case you have tried at some point to create a backup copy on your Xiaomi locally, and then format the terminal, you will have run into a serious problem. This problem may arise after making a copy, or worse, when trying to restore the MIUI backup of our Xiaomi smartphone. When we see that the phone cannot be restored to its original state, we can clearly see that the files, photos and videos are gone.
As we show in the screenshots, so far there was no option in MIUI to safeguard those important elements of our smartphone. Xiaomi Cloud was the only option. However, their 5GB storage is extremely limited and they are unable to protect our gallery without going through the box.
The last beta of MIUI 12.5 He has let us know about this great change with which we could make backup copies of everything we want on our Xiaomi mobile. This change will gradually be implemented to all models. This option will allow us to forget about the limitations of backups in Xiaomi. The source even provides us with an image of what the renewed options panel will look like, with these changes:
What is not clear for now is whether we are going to have to create a backup with the entire gallery and with all the files or if, on the contrary, we will be able to choose certain folders or elements. What of course we can choose is the type of items to include in backups. It is important to have backups in place when you want to restore a mobile phone without losing any files or requiring a complex process to get everything back to their original location.
