Default Is there any way to backup Galaxy S2 data automatically to PC?

hi

Is there any way to backup data from Galaxy S2 automatically to PC? That is, just by connecting it with usb to PC?
with my previous phone (Nokia N97) I could backup all new pics video's, contacts etc. easily, just by connecting it to my pc and having installed the Nokia PC Suite software. All data was backed up automatically without any click of a button, and new pics were put in a dedicated map.
Does anything similar exist for the Galaxy S2? Couldn't find this option on the Kies software....
Thx for any help...

When I connect in mass storage mode I have the option to do several actions on connection and can set any of them to occur on connection.

I tried that, thanks, but it's still not fully automatic this way, you still have to select an option every time you connect...I want somehow to plug in and let it backup any new data, automatically...
How do you make it occur everytime upon connection?

I got the choice on Kies, I'm running version 2.0.0.11014_49.
on the first tab I can check a box who says: sync auto when the device is connected.
on the second tab called: Sync i can choose what i want to sync.

I have never tried it, but guess it will work..

Or else you can try My Phone explorer http://www.fjsoft.at/en/
That one worked fine on my previous phone a SE k850..

Thnx for that.
If Kies will ever actually allow itself to be udpated (grrr) I'll try that.

Oh, how I long for the days of Palm Pilot's FIFTEEN year-old hotsync .......
Its synch checked for new or updated files of ALL types and descriptions and updated ALL to the most recent, on EITHER the PC or the device AUTOMATICALLY on connection, only alerting me with a message if the item had been updated on both platforms or deleted on one.

Oh hang on a sec. I see another alert in the Taskbar .... Kies "Upate (sic) failed - the Internet is not connected". BBL

Furball what version are you running at the moment?

If it's 1.5 please use the uninstaller and Install the new one Manually.

Peace.

Thnx for that - I'm using 1.5.3.10103_102.

OK, I'll bite ...... :-)
Where does Kies tell us to uninstall before upgrading?

I see the uninstaller here ==> http://au.samsungmobile.com/support/...000&sw_type=SW
but only the older Ver 1.5.1 for download.

Where can I (safely) download the 84943KB version 2.0.0.11014_49 that Kies tells me is available, but can't connect to the 'Net to download?

Here.

Also Download the provided Uninstaller.

First use the Uninstaller Provided by Kies, then use the downloaded Uninstaller.

Restart then Install the new Kies.

P.S. If you don't see the link Click on Software

Peace.

I updated Kies, I indeed see both sync options now BUT.... it doesn't work
I restarted Kies and reconnected several times, checked all settings ok...result : NO automatic backup what so ever...
Anyone?
