I accidentally cleared my Google Launcher settings, and it restored to the default. I lost all my folders and widgets. Is there a way to restore my previous settings?
Thanks!

If you didn't backup then you can't restore anything.

Do you mean backing up with a 3rd party app like TB? or is there a way I can back up the settings for restoral without needing a 3rd party app?

Not retrospectively! If you didn't back up your settings before wiping then there is nothing you can do now!

As for future backups, you can only do this through third-party apps at the moment. Something like Helium or TB, but most backup apps require Root as well

As far as I know you can't backup your homescreens, only the Google Search settings.

Although if you use the XGELS module and have bought premium, you can backup icons/folders. Backing up widgets is impossible, however.
