Default Kies Restoring App Data (Game saves)

Discovered some dead pixel on my screen. Since i'm still unrooted (yeah knox is a pain in the ass) i used Kies 3 to backup my data and go for a replacement. I tried to restore everything from kies then.

So for my surprise Kies simply re installed my apps without data. Twitter, Netflix and every app that needs login information asked me for my credentials. But the worst was that all my games, some Saves with 15 plus hours, i must start from scratch.

I tried to restore a second time without success. Am i doing something wrong? Or this is it? Kies cant backup the data/cache/savegames whatever from the apps? If this is the case, kies is useless.

I've actually been wondering the same thing, been looking for a decent non root backup system, that can take backups of app data (saves, login info, accounts etc)

Use helium. No root required but requires you connect to pc via USB to enable it on the device. I restored my game and app data with it. Although some apps I noticed still doesn't restore data but it's like only 2 to 3 apps out of my 50 so apps.
