    Hi Guys,

    I changed the service I used a long time ago. I'm storing my pictures in my own nextcloud, I use my own Calendar and Contact server and a own password manager.

    Now I want to send my smart phone to repair.
    I don't want to restore it by hand. So I think the first time about using the app OnePlus Switch.

    What happens with my data? Can I store them just on my computer local?
    Or does I send all data to the OnePlus server?

    OnePlus switch is a local app. You have to backup, then move that file to your computer. There is nothing stored on server.

    Okay. But I missunderstood the purpose of this app. I think it is just for the case you bought a new phone and want transfere the data.
    I see no option to create backup of all installed apps and settings...

    When you open oneplus switch you should see a back up option at the bottom, like on the screenshot. Once you click on it you'll be able to select create a new back up and choose what you want to back up.
