    The data backup to Google servers can't be enabled, see the screenshots:

    Where and how can i enable the Google Backup??
    I find this a essential feature of Android and absolutely necessary.

    Kind regards,

    I can't believe that this is a bug that is present since many versions, because this is a essential function, that should have attracted attention of course.

    Is it possible that the "Backup my data" is disabled when something other, e.g. the Mi Cloud Backup, is enabled?
    Would be interesting to find someone who can enable the "Backup my data".

    I can confirm, all custom widgets (i.e. zooper widget) has gone after local backup. The same behavior was a year ago on any rom and this is still exist in fresh roms. So local backup is not suitable for backup)))

    P.S. I've tried to install official global dev and stable(not xiaomi.eu), and google backup is unavailable in any of these roms.

    Hi, it appears that this issue will be there longer than before we have a chance to perform a backup. Do you have any suggestions to use an App or are we doomed to a manual backup via usb to pc?

    UPDATE

    With the version 6.8.18 i noticed that is possible to turn on the backup now:

    I did, but it seems to do nothing:

    [​IMG]

    The translation says "Currently no data is backed up in any account".

    Does it take some time or what?
    Because it says "data will by periodically saved"...
