I think I have tried everything to transfer my Tab Z to a new Z2: Both are on the latest O/S.

1) I have tried to back up the old tab but when I "migrate" the data to the new, I get a failure message telling me the backup file is faulty and that I should re-do the backup
2) I have tried the Transfer app and the two devices get to the point of talking but then I get a message that they failed to pair
3) I have tried NFC but I get the same "failed to pair" message.

Am I missing something? Is there a setting I need to change on either machine?

Oh, and I don't want to root!

Try helium for app transfer with data. For everything else, you logging into Google account should take care of it with auto sync
