Default [Q] How to make an backup to my PC instead of internal memory

Hello folks,
How can I make a backup via TWRP, directly to my pc?
I was wondering this, because my internal memory is almost full (900mb free), so, is there an easy option to backup all the Data partition directly to my notebook?

Thanks in advance

Just temporarily move some data off the internal memory long enough to make your backup. Then connect to PC and pull the backup off. It will be on the internal memory in the TWRP folder. Once you have moved the backup off (and maybe delete old backups?) then you can move all the data you want back to the internal memory.

As far as doing a direct backup w/TWRP, I don't believe that is currently possible.

Thanks for the reply, as I do this backups frequently, I always have a full storage, so this is a inconvenience.

As a temporary solution, I discovered that adb can pull all your files from sd to your pc very easy, e.g.:

Code:
adb pull /sdcard/ /temp/Moto
This is making the adb to copy all files from sdcard to C:/temp/Moto

This will make things a lot easier for me
