Step 1: Install the ElephantDrive iOS app on your iPhone/iPad. We can be found in your app store or at this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/elephantdrive/id637645058
Step 2: Open your ElephantDrive iOS app. You will see your ElephantDrive Home Screen (as the image below on the left). Click on the Setting tab to make sure that you have Backup turned on for both Contacts and Pictures (as the image below on the right).

You can cancel the backup process anytime by clicking on Cancel.
