Default Installed TWRP recovery. Backup/nandroid question.

I tried a backup and I got alot of failure notices. Something about unable to access partition.

Which options should I check when doing a backup?

Thanks for any assistance you might be able to offer.

You should have at a minimum two backup folders, EFS and your latest stable install. If you want a clean setpoint, do as below.

Go into recovery, navigate to backup, tick only the checkbox for EFS, slide the knob to the right. Go back, now tick only system, boot and data, slide the knob to the right. Reboot system. Now throw your EFS backup on your computer or Dropbox and keep it safe in case of emergency.

You'll have one clean backup that you can restore, and a failsafe with your EFS.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thank You.

I'm still getting an error though. It says -

e:unable to mount USB.

That error is simply text, which can be safely ignored. If you get a successful flash, and can reboot, you have no issues that should give rise to concern.

A read lettered error message from a bad flash...let us say that some have encountered some unpleasant problems.
When that happens, you'll want your backup handy.
