    Before applying updates, Autel recommends backing up the data.
    So I wanted to backup my MS908BT to a Micro SD card or a USB Flash Drive.
    However when I try to do that, I get the following error:
    "Your system forbids ES from writing on external SD card(check, so ES can only write on it after rooted."

    I tried to go to the webpage listed, but I got and error that it was not found or couldn't be translated.

    How do I backup my files to an SD card or USB drive?

      From the Android Homepage with the Maxi sys App closed try an unused brand new Sandisk 32gb USB flash drive.(I didn't have any luck trying a used formatted USB thumb drive of another brand) In ES Explorer copy and paste Scan Folder to USB Flash drive. Make sure your  tablet is plugged into it's charger  with a good charge on it's battery to start with.
    Make sure you allow several hours for the process. I used the USB SS port of my MaxiSys Elite with a USB3 thumbdrive and it still took a couple hours or more. Due to these tablets not having an internal cooling fans I actually wrapped a large plastic  Block of Blue Ice with a thick dry plush breathable cotton towel around it and layed my Maxi Sys on it hoping to keep things running cooler inside.
