    Greetings. I'm losing my mind.

    In October, SMS Backup stopped backing up to my Gmail account. I didn't notice, but now I have an S7 and I'm trying to backup everything before taking the leap.

    I logged into Gmail with the correct password and used SMS Backup. I got several failures. IMAP in Gmail is enabled.

    I've tried SMS Backup & Restore, and SMS Backup+, so three different apps.

    SMS Backup and Restore did send a zip file to Dropbox, but they appear to be gibberish .DAT files. I tried opening in Notepad. I loved the simplicity of reading past text conversations in Gmail, with all the texts in order, and labeled by who sent them.

    I desperately want to save these texts, some are from my sister who passed away.

    Thank you.
