Android – Allow Permissions

  • Tap Start Backup.
  • You may get the same permission prompt.

  • Now tap PKBackup.
    No PKBackup listed?

    Some phones may show the Picture Keeper drive as PKBackup, UDisk, STT, or other names. If you see anything like this, it is likely your Picture Keeper. Do not select Internal storage.

  • Next tap Select at the bottom right or Select PKBackup. (depends on the phone)

  • This should now display the Start Backup screen.
  • Tap Allow or Deny to any prompts like Videos or Contacts.
  • Tap Start Backup

You can make more choices in the next screens by tapping the check marks
