Mi backup causing home screen shortcuts to disappear

I have a strange problem with my 10 Ultra and after doing a Google search, similar issues have been noted but I can't find any answers.
I use Mi Cloud for my weekly scheduled backups but after it runs I find that some icons and widgets are missing.
I thought it might be the Mi stock launcher but it has done this on Nova, Lawnchair and Microsoft's launcher too, so it's not a launcher issue.
So has anyone else seen the problem and have an idea on how to fix it? I've seen reference to the same problem back to at least the MI5 but other than to stop using scheduled backups, no one has printed any resolution, so any help appreciated?
