    Hey Droidforums,

    I dont have a big SD card yet, and my phone seems to be filling up fast with nandroid backups..

    I was wondering if I can just transfer them from the internal storage from within the ClockworkdMod folder, and store them on my computer?

    Do i risk the ability to be able to load them back onto the internal storage due to a bootloop?


    Obviously, I would keep a few on my internal storage just in case, but is this possible to do?

    I always keep a copy on my pc
    As many roms as I have flashed or made backups of sometimes a person needs to make room on the sd card

    If you're worried about what to do in case of bl, just keep your latest one on the card

    Hmm...that's an interesting point with the boot loop. You CAN store them in a folder on your pc to free up some room if you want. The problem that you'd face if you removed them entirely is whether or not you'd be able to access Clockwork mod to install from zip and then be able to choose zip. I would keep at least one recent backup on there at all times, it would be to risky, (and potentially expensive if you hard brick your device) not to.

    Edit: What's the hold up on the sd? Just get like a 2 - 4gb one to start, you can always supersize later. Verizon will usually let you order one and bill it to your account. If your with another carrier they might do it for you also.

    Always a good idea to keep at least your most recent backup on your computer AND SD card. You have to factor in SD card failure.
