can do that!

CDs and hard drives can be scratched, damaged, lost and even stolen.

SMARTPHONE? CAN I STILL BACK UP MY PHONE'S CONTACTS LIST?
A. Yes, you can back up your contacts and other data from your phone using either

up. Once a device's data is backed up successfully, subsequent backups will be
relatively brief as only new or changed files are backed up.
