It would be highly upsetting when one's smartphone goes missing or damaged. The loss is not only about money, but also about the data that may never be reproduced. An efficient way to keep you away from data loss is to perform backup on a regular basis.

How to use Cloud Backup
Click on the Settings icon on your Device. Click on HUAWEI ID account center on top of the screen to log in or directly access the account center. Choose Cloud > Cloud backup.

To recover backup data

If you have lots of images in your Gallery BUT select not to Sync the Gallery, backup fails and says you don't have enough space.
If you enable Gallery Sync and then Backup, it starts but then fails because your 5GB 'free' Cloud space is full - even though it also says that photos and videos backed up through Gallery will not be included in Cloud backup size.
