    hi there,

    I need to backup the some of the SMS conversations in my phone (threads) and delete them permanently.

    1. How to do the above? where to view my threads which are currently being 'backed up' ?

    2. Is there any method to retain them into a file?

    Welcome to Windows Central.

    1. You can go to Settings > backup > text messages and enabled the backup feature there. However, if you delete your messages from your phone, the backed messages will also be deleted. There is also no way to view the backed up files. These are the current limitations of this feature.

    2. Following from #1, there is no way to "retain them into a file" from the backed up files. However, you may always copy all of your messages manually and individually into OneNote, sync your OneNote account to your PC and then copy the messages from OneNote to a word processing software (Notepad, Word, etc.).
