App Data Manage Tool is a tool for Windows 10 Mobile devices to create backups from current state of apps and games, and restore them at a later time, or to another phone, or to your phone after a factory reset.

Although Microsoft introduced some APIs to backup apps into OneDrive, many apps still don't use it (Hill Climb Racing, WhatsApp, are you listening? )

This tool helps you to create local backup archives from any of your apps and games; then you can copy them to your PC and then to any phone so you can restore that archive.

Additionally, you can reset the state of apps, which is almost the same as reinstalling them, but is faster and also it can be done on some system apps (which you can't reinstall them)

Your phone must be interop unlocked. Here's a quick how to (for Lumias except x50 series):
  • Download Interop Tools by Gustave M. (ARM version) and its Dependencies from here and copy them to your phone.
  • Set your phone to Developer Mode (from Settings, Update & security, For Developers)
  • Tap on each of Dependencies from File Explorer, then tap on Interop Tools appx.
  • Open Interop Tools from app list, go to "Interop Unlock", tap on "Restore NDTKSvc" and then reboot your phone.
  • Open Interop Tools again and go to "Interop Unlock", now tap on "Interop/Cap unlock".
(For x50 series and non-Lumia phones, the steps might be different. search for it)

After you Interop Unlocked your phone, installing App Data Manage Tool is easy.
  • Just get it from the download link below, extract the ZIP and copy its contents to your phone, and tap on the appx from File Explorer to install. (you might need to install Dependencies first)

Download App Data Manage Tool Beta

See and contribute to the source code on GitHub

The interface is easy to use, look yourself

Thanks for this, unfortunately I think I can't test this on my Lumia 650, because of limitations 🤔, but if I find a way I'll let you know.

Hmm, seems like can find 8.1 XAPs (Silverlight apps), but not 8 XAPs. I'll take a look to see if I can figure out a way to back up those apps too.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. Can you explain more?

I tried but failed to register packages from installed files. For now you can install apps from Store after hard reset, and then restore their data using this app.
