Hi there,

I would like to create a full and clean backup of my Redmi Note 7 but in TWRP I have much more than what most tutorials say, so I'm not sure of what folders I should select. Could someone confirm me which one are important and which one aren't ?

Here is the full list of folders available in TWRP backup menu:
  • Data (excl. storage)(4277MB)
  • Cache (5MB)
  • System (2634MB)
  • System Image (3584MB)
  • Boot (64MB)
  • dtbo (8MB)
  • Recovery (64MB)
  • Vendor (746MB)
  • Vendor Image (2048MB)
  • Firmware (192MB)
  • Persist (0MB)
  • Persist_backup (0MB)
  • bluetooth (0MB)
  • dsp (8MB)
  • cust (0MB)
  • Splash (64MB)
  • Rpm (0MB)
  • Tz (4MB)
  • devinfo (8MB)
  • fsg (8MB)
  • EFS (16MB)
  • abl (1MB)
  • xbl (3MB)
  • msadp (0MB)
  • apdp (0MB)
  • cmnlib64 (1MB)
  • cmnlib (1MB)

But on the website of TWRP they also recommend "system", "endor" and "Vendor Image":

If I backup everything, when I restore the phone can I chose which one I want to restore or everything will be restored automatically?
If you backup everything, on restore operation you can choose every singol item.

Okay then it's better to select every single folder when I do the backup now in case one of them is needed. As it's a new phone maybe there are some info not known about it atm.
