How to Sync Titanium Backup with Box account

If you’re like me, you use the Titanium Backup app (and here) to backup all your apps and data so that if you often switch phones or install now Android custom ROMs you can easily restore all your apps and their data and settings.

I’ve been using this app for years, and always just backed up to the SD card.  But if you’re phone doesn’t have an SD card, then it’s a pain to copy all the backup files to your computer before wiping your phone to install a new ROM or get a new phone.  Hence the beauty of cloud storage.

It took me forever to figure out how to sync my Titanium Backup with my Box account, because I couldn’t find it in the settings anywhere. So here’s how you do it.

First go to Menu -> Preferences and check the “Enable Box” checkbox.  You would think that next you would need to put in your credentials under the “Box Settings” button, which is what I thought, but its not there.  You need to go to ‘Schedules’ from the starting TB screen, and click ‘Add new schedule’.  Choose all the settings you want, then at the bottom under the ‘When finished’ dropdown, select ‘Sync to Box’ or the cloud storage of your choice, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

Now click ‘Save’, then click ‘Run’.  You will now finally see the login screen for Box where you can enter your credentials.

Hit ‘Login’ and sign in to Box, and it will run the action. We’re done!

I’m using Android 4.2.2 and TB version 6.1.5.3
