Formatting your Android smartphone will be a big headache for most of us. The main reason will be our Contacts. Although, Google contact sync is available for all and will be an automated method. Most of the android users are unaware of this and which was disabled for them. Because of all these problems, people find it difficult to format their Smartphones when it is required.
In this case, we can use a Cloud Service using an application named CM Backup. It is a free cloud backup & restores tool developed by Clean Master’s sister team: Cheetah Mobile. They are providing us a free 5GB of your own personal cloud storage. Just download the application from Google Play Store and create a free account. Then, you can see all the items in the dashboard, and you can take the backup, such as Contacts, SMS, Call Logs, Calendar, etc.
Update: CM Backup is discontinued, so i recommend to use Super Back up and Restore for all your backup and Restore
Click on the required item and take the backup of all of them quickly. Then, after formatting your phone, reinstall the application and log on to the CM Backup application and restore all the previously taken backups.

Some Frequently Asked Questions about CB Backup Cloud Storage
Is CM Backup App is Available Now?
Unfortunately, CM Backup App is not available as the service is completely discontinued.
CM Backup for iPhone and Android Not Working?

Why CM Backup Discontinued
There is no specific reason for stopping the service. However, the CM Backup app is no more functional. It was owned by Cheetah Mobile and this gives the answer. They used to stop the service without a big announcement.
Is it possible to get CM Backup Restore Working?
Once the service was discontinued, the company offered few days to take all the backup for all the users. But the fact was, the time was too short and even a large number of users were unaware of the news. And currently as of now, there is no option to retrieve the backup and restore CM Backup.
Was CM Cloud Storage worth the time?
At that time, there is no doubt that CM backup was an excellent backup service. However, the service was not trustworthy and discontinued in the middle.
