Helium is a bit quirky with Motorola phones. I could not restore my backup (on the phone sd card ) after upgrading my phone to Kitkat . Luckily I had made an earlier backup onto the computer over WiFi

Creating a backup of your SD card is not that same as backing up your applications. For backing up applications with data, I recommend Titaniumbackup. It does require root though, if you're not rooted Helium is a good runner up.

For copying contents from internal storage to your PC, I'd stay away from copying files/folders using Windows explorer via MTP/PTP. My experience is that file transfers will often fail or hang. Use adb push/pull commands instead, or use an app that will run a FTP server on your phone, allowing access via a FTP client on your PC.

Ive found that Helium constantly breaks while trying to backup large APKs . So here is a work around which worked for me get a backup of installed apps and data .

Backup
1) Backup apk using ES Explorer or equivalent .
2) Backup contents of /Android/obb . ( this is where some apps like games store extra content )
3) Take backup of data using Helium using Web console . May be you can try backing up to device also .. Might work

Restore
1) You can either manually install backed up apps using any Android File explorer OR simply use ADB command line (no app installation prompts )

adb install -r APk .

To batch install on DOS use

for %i in (*.apk) DO adb install -r "%i"

2) now restore app data using Helium using web console or restoring from device .

3) Restore obb folder contents

This for me was much faster and had lesser failures due to Helium hanging
