Recent job posting reveals phone backup and easy restore will be coming to Windows Phones
Windows Phone is still considered to be in its infancy, seeing that it’s the latest mobile platform on the scene, but as we’ve seen already, Microsoft has made plenty of headway in bringing its smartphone operating system up to par with the elites in the industry. Still, there is one feature that some users would’ve thought to be a part of the platform from day one – an easy backup system of some sort.

Thankfully, it looks like that it’s coming in the future seeing that a recent job posting on Microsoft’s job site mentions phone back and easy restore will be making its way to the next version of Windows Phone. Actually, the job posting is for a Redmond-based Software Development Engineer that would be a part of Microsoft’s team for Windows Phone Backup, Migrate, and Restore. Specifically, the posting reads:

Come join the Windows Phone Backup, Migrate, and Restore team. Our goal is to ensure that no matter if someone loses their phone, drops their phone in a lake, buys a new windows phone, or just has their toddler wipe their phone by entering the wrong PIN over and over, a user can quickly and seamlessly get their phone back to a good state. The features we are producing will be new for the next version of Windows Phone and will help ensure Microsoft stays ahead of the competition when it comes to disaster recovery. Come be a part of defining this area.


Yes, it might not be a big thing considering that many would’ve assumed this feature to be a part of the platform since the beginning, but nonetheless, it’s eventually coming in some form – whether it’s incorporated with Zune on a PC or some kind of cloud-based system. Either way, we’d bet that both will be available, but now it’s simply a matter of time at this point.
