Where does helium backup store my app backups – solution

If you use the application "Helium Backup" to back up your app data on your Android smartphone, then the following question may arise:
Where does helium backup stores my app backups?

This question is important because helium backup only offers the following options to save a backup:

• Internal device memory
• Cloud

Since it is a backup app which is used mostly before a factory reset, it makes little sense to backup to the internal memory. So you have to copy the backup folder from internal memory manually via USB cable to the computer. For this purpose, it is important to know where the backup files from helium backup are stored.
You can find the files here, after the Android smartphone is connected to the PC:

phone / carbon /

The folder is not visible to the File Explorer "My Documents" of your Android smartphone. Therefore, you should copy this folder directly to the PC. You know now there you can find on your Android smartphone backups that you have created with "Helium Backup".

This is important info left out of the Helium app Thank YOU! Also for Tablets, such as Android Marshmallow on a Nexus 7, the folder is /sdcard/carbon as tablets don't have a /phone/ folder. copy the /carbon/ folder over with some other file...

This is important info left out of the Helium app Thank YOU! Also for Tablets, such as Android Marshmallow on a Nexus 7, the folder is /sdcard/carbon as tablets don't have a /phone/ folder. copy the /carbon/ folder over with some other file manager app, like ES-File explorer, you can copy it to a SD card or through network storage to your pc. Make sure you have at least HALF your phone in freespace On your phone (or tablet), if you use the internal storage method. It would be nice if Helium made 1 zipped single large file out of your backed up stuff. but oh well this works as it is! ~ThumpieBunnyEve
