Google Will Delete Your Android Backup after 60 Days
“There was no warning from Google. They just deleted my data. There’s apparently an expiration date that shows up under the backup if I had checked the Backup folder sooner, but there was no notification, no email, no proactive notice at all, and most importantly, no option to use the 100gb of my Drive storage to keep my backup,” Tanglebrook said in his post on Reddit.
While the backup service is available for some time back from Android 6.0 that is Marshmallow and the search giant keep on trying to improve its services for user. Now user can even store backup in Google drive folders.
But from the above mention incident users started fearing of losing their data if they don’t access their device for two months.
