What software do I now use to backup my wife's and mine Samsung S5 phones? It was Switch at one time, what is it now?

What software do I now use to backup my wife's and mine Samsung S5 phones? It was Switch at one time, what is it now?. I have tried: I have not backed it up in over a year. It would backup to the Cloud as setup by the sales people. I now want to back it up to my computer before I get rid of it. I want to sale both mine and my wife's. I think it was caused by: We now have Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Phones. Also what software will we use to back those phones to my computer?
