  8. backup not working

    cloud backup fail
    local backup fail

    I have a backup file in each location, but don't want to try restoring (to see if THAT works) to an older backup without current backup ability. It's not a storage space issue on local drive; more than 100 GB available.

  9. Failed to create a Cloud Backup

    I can't perform a cloud backup. The screen keeps loading for hours, and nothing happens. To optimize, I tried to check only the option to save the existing settings in order to make the backup lighter, but it didn't work.

  15. backups do not save the opacity and blur settings. when I restore from a backup, those settings are not restored.

    I have backed up my settings, but when I go to restore them the capacity and blur settings for the homepage are not restored from a backup, they seem to be set back to the default.
