    Default Re: Titanium Backup Pro Sync with Google Drive Issue

    hey vicw926a4

    I'm having some troubles too im on TBP 5.6 and whenever i sync to either drop or drive i get "upload to google drive failed network error". However i dont need to resume, i can continue. Im not sure if those backups are viable since it was disconnected so many times.

    You said you've been talking to TB people and were u able to find anything? I dont see a lot of this happening.

    When i tried the new TB free trial, it would freeze or stall on a file called "com.android.sharedstoragebackup"

    It would be nice if there was a solution to this.

    thanks!

    I haven't really had any exchanges with the TB folks lately. I'm able to backup to Google Drive and Dropbox, but it's a bit fragile. It seems like any transmission error results in an abort of the backup, but overall, it's working pretty well to both.

    One thing I have found you need to be really careful with on Google Drive is that you haven't filled your available space. I wasted several hours this week, before it dawned on me to check the drive status, and it was full. You can see it in Google /Settings/Storage. If you are near or at the filled up status, you may be able to empty the Trash on the drive, reorganize your data, or of course Google will me more than happy to sell you more space.

    The backups work, but the code seems to me to be not very robust. You need to watch your notifications to make sure the backup was successful, and if not, run another one manually.

    It's annoying, and I don't think it's going to change, but TB is so important and valuable to me, I'm willing to cope with this one weak area.

    I wouldn't give up TB on my Android devices.

    Just to CMA, I'm syncing to Dropbox, but it's so much slower...argh.
    Guess I'll just keep trying 'til it works.

    I just found this thread looking to see if anyone else had the same issue as I. The reason I even bought the pro version of TB was because of it's "ability" to upload to Dropbox. It did when I first bought it but have only tried recently and it never completes. Tried Google Drive just now and same thing. But...come to think of it, my wifi isn't the best here at work, and now I can't remember if I tried at home. I'll give it a go and see what happens this evening.

    I started with TB Pro backups to Dropbox and never had a problem. A couple of days ago, I decided to switch to Google Drive because I want to use all my Dropbox capacity for other things. Guess what. Same problem as above, Google drive fails midstream, repeatedly. I'm back to Dropbox and doing a backup now. No problems so far.

    FWIW, I had a similar incident where I consistently couldn't complete my sync to Google Drive that turned out was because I was already almost at my full use capacity in Google Drive, Once I got rid of some files and cleaned out the Trash, I was able to again backup successfully. I have since expanded my account to give me more working space.

    IMHO, TB coding for the syncs/backups is really not very robust. The notifications are pretty nondescript and there is no real logging. It seems to me that any glitch in the data transfers cause the syncs to exit, rather than execute any retries.

    I've been running TB backups on as many as 4 Android devices, and consistently on 3 of them, to Google Drive and to Dropbox, so I am doing at least nine a week to each of them. In my use, I get failures here and there on each of them. I monitor the notifications and rerun manually whenever it reports an error, rather than a completion. I need to start keeping a log on which one fails the most.

    The only saving grace in the error exits is that usually, the files that were uploaded prior to the exit don't have to be transfered on the subsequent manual sync, so it will make progress until all of the files are transferred. I wish things could be cleaner in this regard, but I don't think it will happen. TB has been so valuable to me, I am willing to live with this area of weakness.

    Default Re: Titanium Backup Pro Sync with Google Drive Issue

    I recently rooted my Motorola Droid 2 and installed Ti Backup. I enabled sync to Google Drive and ran through the sync process twice. It claims to have synced successfully after a long upload, but when I check my Google Drive, there are no backup files present or any activity listed for uploads. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    I've been uploading TB backups to Google Drive and to Dropbox for many months, from 3 different Android devices, 3 times a week, and I haven't experienced that. The only times I thought the files might have disappeared turned out to be when I had inadvertently connected to my wife's Google Drive account. I've backed up files encrypted and not encrypted.
