Backup has gained an important role as the best strategy for data preservation in case of equipment failure or other catastrophes. However, the backup applications that are available do not contribute much to the power optimization. This poses a serious challenge to the otherwise ubiquitous methodologies of backup. The technique presented in this paper mainly concentrates on optimizing the power consumption of mobile devices while backing up the data. The existing backup strategies enable users to back up the data either in their virtual space or online and retrieve the data through internet.
