    I'm experiencing a number of issues on my 1020 and as a last resort I'm considering a factory reset. I'm reluctant to do this though as I have a lot of app and game data that will be lost.

    Is there any way of finding out which apps and games participate in the OneDrive settings backup please? It will be a bit gutting to lose all my high scores, achievements and the like.

    It's a good bet that none of them do. Check the app descriptions in store. If one does use OneDrive for app data, it will probably listed and highlighted.

    Cheers. Was hoping for an easier method such as a pre-compiled list but may have to do it the hard way.

    Thanks again.

    If a game saves your data to onedrive, it will explicitly ask you for permission to do so. I only saw that feature in Throne wars

    The one time I factory reset my phone I learned something: apps that are installed on your phone but have been removed from the store will be gone forever. So you might want to do some research and see if you can somehow save that app installation for later.
