recovering SMS & contacts for Android 'phone

  KeithMH 09:05 20 Sep 2017

I've had to reset my Android 5.1 'phone. Before I did so, I copied the internal contents to my PC. I also have the SD card, which is in the 'phone. So, I'm assuming my SMS messages and contacts are in there somewhere. Can anyone help me get them out?

Do you have a google account ? and did you back up or synchronise to google?

If so then just recreate the google account on the phone and it will reload the data when you connect to your google account.

Many thanks for your reply. I do have a Google account, but did not back up to it. I have a backup, but it's not very up to date (5th August!).
