Where does Samsung Kies store my backups? Solution!

When you select Samsung Kies to create a backup of your Samsung Galaxy S5 Galaxy Note 3, etc. on the computer then you possibly ask the question where the backup is stored. We want to show you in this article, where you can find the backup which was made by Samsung Kies on the PC.

The location of the backup is not, as one might think in the install folder of Samsung Kies, but in the folder “My files”. More specifically, under the following directory:

My documents (your name) -> My Documents -> Samsung -> Kies3 -> backup -> your smartphone model number

An  example of a directory-path for a backup created with the Samsung Galaxy S5:

C: \ Users \ ** YourName ** \ Documents \ samsung \ Kies3 \ backup \ SM-G900F \ SM-G900F_ \ SM-G900F

It is important to know that the call logs and contacts are stored in a separate file within the backup.

     For contacts the file is named: Contacts.spb
     For the call log: Calllog.scl

You know now where you can find the backup of your smartphone that was created with Samsung Kies.

Kies 3 does NOT store its data in the path the article claims.<br /><br />I appear to have a "Kies" folder though....<br /><br /> ;-)
