What data on the phone do you want to backup?
Photos, contacts?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes plus any new apps i have obtained.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Apps you cannot backup you will have to download and install again.
If the computer is not detecting the phone, then you damaged the data port so you wont be able to back it up onto the computer, but we will attempt to back it up online.
Download and install the app Dropbox from the playstore which can backup your photos online.
Let me know when you have please.
