  1. 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.

  4. I can't restore backup of settings as version of launcher on Android 11 is lower than version on 10.

    I am trying to migrate to new phone. Both have latest launcher. Point version on Android 11 is lower thank Android 10 so it won't allow restore of settings etc.

  7. apps vanish

    Apps manually added in homescreen disappear after the launcher crashes and phone restart and is replaced by the default apps set by launcher. Restoring my back ups doesn't solve it.

  9. Firefox links disappear

    I pinned links from mozilla Firefox as icons in folders on the homescreen.
    I backup the launcher in the cloud. When I restore it, all links in folders are gone.
    Super annoying.

  12. unable to restore backup due to version

    I had to reset my phone, and backed up Launcher prior to doing so. I am now trying to restore from backup, but getting an error that I need to update the version. I pulled the latest from the Play store, but it still is an older version.

  13. Dock not backing up properly to cloud storage

    If I back up my home screen to cloud storage, and I save my settings, and widgets only, (Not my wallpaper), and I restore the backup, the apps that I had in the dock before I restored the backup are mixed up, and many are missing, which means I have to rearrange my dock again.

  18. backup does not save shortcuts

    I use FX File Explorer by NextApp, Inc. It has feature to create shortcuts to any other normally accessable folder and put these shortcuts on the home screen. When I run MS Launcher Backup and then Restore, these shortcuts (and any Launcher folders they may be in) do not restore. I do not know if this is problem with MS Launcher or FX. I am sending them a copy of this report. Thank you for looking into this.
