TWRP Backup & Restore Tool

Description:
This tool gives you an ability to make a backup of your phone to your PC using the latest TWRP 3.1.0 Recovery. This is a simple handy tool if you want to make a backup of your phone to your PC and you don't want to deal with ADB commands.

Features:
1. Complete Backup
2. Partition specific backup (system, boot etc.)
3. Backup option from phone's GUI
4. Full restore
5. Boot into recovery
6. System reboot


NOTE:
1. Only works with TWRP v3.1.0+
2. I can't provide support for issues related to TWRP. This is just a simple tool to save you some typing, most of the work is done by TWRP itself.
3. TWRP 3.1.0 still has some bugs and it may fail to do backup/restore on some devices


Download & Instructions
For Windows:
TWRP Backup Tool v1.1
Mirror
For Mac:
TWRP Backup Tool For Mac
For Linux:
TWRP Backup Tool For Linux

How to use the tool for Mac & Linux?
  1. Extract the folder in the zip on your desktop.
  2. Open up the terminal. Type "cd " (with space).
  3. Drag and drop the folder to the terminal. Press Enter.
  4. Now Drap and drop the TWRP Backup Tool file to the terminal. Press Enter.

Please do not copy the download links outside this forum. You can link to my website's download page or to this thread. :)

FAQ:
1. AdbWinApi.dll not found
You need to install ADB drivers on your computer.
2."Now unlock your device and confirm the backup operation..."
This message is generated by TWRP and not by my tool. I am guessing it means check your phone for the backup process.
3. Virus Total Result: HERE!


Thanks to:
  1. TWRP: For providing backup over adb to PC.
  2. aaron74: For providing automatic backup file name for Mac/Linux script.

Bugs:
Let me know if you find any bugs.

When I try to make a backup, after I reboot into recovery, it tells me to unlock my phone and check to see if the backup operation has worked. My phone isn't locked, it's on the TWRP home screen. Also, it seems that the backed up files will be stored on my phone, not my PC. How is that better than just making a backup with TWRP?
