  1. Backup not working

    It shows backup failed whenever I try to take the backup fron launcher settings. I don't know if this problem was there in the previous version but I updated the app today and backup feature isn't working anymore for me. I'm using a Galaxy J5 Prime (2017).

  6. backup not working

    When you select create a backup, it will ask if you want it on the cloud or local, then error out saying that it couldn't recognize the problem.

  7. Backup to cloud doesn't end (it seems)

    Click backup to cloud, the progress bar goes all the way to 90-95%then the screen just stuck there.
    Later on when I try again it seems to have backup successfully but dunno where to check.

  15. Backup hangs at Estimating space requirement

    I am unable to backup data from the Launcher settings. It will not proceed past the "Estimating space requirements message". I have let it run overnight. It spins forever. I have done a factory reset. This started two builds ago.

  16. Backup hangs at Estimating Size.

    The launcher backup hangs at"Estimating size". It spins forever. I left it overnight and it never completes. Rebooting the launcher and the phone does not fix it. This started with the last update.
