Re: Best backup app for non rooted?
You can actually backup your device with TWRP and it will do a complete backup of your device, even if you aren't rooted. However, I'm not sure if you can restore it if you are unrooted. What you do is flash the recovery through fastboot, which requires adb on your computer. It's a little complicated, but that's how I backed up my device before I unlocked the bootloader and rooted it.

For backing up just apps I think my backup can do it non rooted. But that may only be the premium version

Can you flash TWRP though if you bootloader is locked? I am guessing that since the OP is not rooted, he/she probably doesnt have the tablet unlocked either. And with a bootloader unlock it wipes all data, so it wont help if TWRP or CWM cant be flashed with a locked bootloader.

Actually you can. You just boot recovery rather than flashing it. I wanted to unlock and root my device but I had already set it up and had it for a few weeks. I booted into recovery through fastboot and backed up my device. Then I transfered the backup folder as well as the rest of my internal storage to my computer so it wouldn't be deleted when i unlocked my bootloader. Then I unlocked, booted recovery again, restored my backup, and then rooted and I was now unlocked and rooted without losing anything
