    In holo backup, adb backup with system apps is said to be unsafe. I was and am not sure why it is. But I tried it anyway, and slept then when I woke up in the morning, my computer crashed. So I am wondering what is going on. (I tried other "safe" adb backup methods, and they did not crash my computer :) )

    adb - Is there any way to check the backup that android does?

    Today I have been researching a bit about the Android backup options (Since I have seen some people having to lose all their data due to ICS serious bugs).

    From now, I prefer to use native options, such like the "default" option or the adb backup -all command.

    But my question regards to the regular way. It's to say, I enable the Settings->Backup->Backup my data option (on ICS). Now I would like to check on my google account preferences when the data was last backed up and maybe what data is safe.

    I'm not sure if that's possible, but does anyobody know it?
