First off shout out to Vmmatty over in the Android central forum http://goo.gl/kha4Uy
It seems that Verizon is trying to be sneaky and just hide Samsung Cloud to push you towards their cloud. But it's actually there, they just hid the icon.
If you use an app like quickshortcutmaker and you look for Samsung Backup and Restore (com.samsung.android.scloud)
You can create a short cut for it and boom. You can now access Samsung Cloud and get your free 15gb.

Delete smt on Cloud

How to delete or view smt on Cloud? Anyone know how to manager SS Cloud on PC? I want to delete synced gallery, but i can't find any option to do it. Can't tap on Gallery in Samsung cloud usage: prntscr.com/cblhij

Same. Apps fail to backup, have tried troubleshooting to no avail.[/

The solution is to temporarily enable all of your Package Disabler bloat apps, do the Cloud backup, then disable the bloat again.

I was also not able to back up my apps via Samsung Cloud. Your solution worked and allowed backups to complete. I went in and enabled all apps, then after the backup disabled them again. Thanks.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm the VMmatty from Android Central. Thanks for the shout outs!

    On a somewhat related topic, I discovered that I can take a Samsung Cloud backup and restore it directly onto my Note 5. I was then able to backup from my Note 5 and restore it to my Note 7. In other words, a smaller version of Samsung Cloud is on the Note 5 (and probably the S7/S7 Edge also). I used the same procedure outlined in the original post. You can find the details here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...note-5-restore-n7-backup-n5-n5-backup-n7.html

    I was just surprised to see basically the same Samsung Cloud interface on the Note 5. Did anyone else know it was there?

    Either way I'm happy to see I was able to help some of you!
