Sailfish X I think it could be usefull to have the option to choose what to backup and what to restore. Right now, if I choose to backup, it takes Accounts/Browser/Calendar/Media/Messages/notes/People/phone and restore all the same at once. I think it could be useful to choose to restore only "Accounts" for example or only "contacts" and not to have to restore everything at once.

Sorry if it's been mentioned earlier, I could'nt find anything using the search regarding this

Upvote, and integration. When switching from Jolla 1 to Xperia X, the backup Sailfish often doesn't works. It could be useful to have a "download your app" section on Jolla Store, it's present yet on Play Store, it's possible...

This actually used to be possible until about 2 years ago (there were 8 categories you could enable/disable before selecting to start the backup process), but for some reason they changed it so you can only back up everything.

I had to restore Jolla C today, my bacpup was 1,4 Gb, mostly pictures. I actually wanted to backup eveything else except pictures as I backup them manually (rsync).

Made factory reset and restored from backup -- only pictureas were restored, everyting else is missing :X I know solution for contacts, but what about call log? Oh my ...

I really miss an option to select wht to backup :(
