    Hello, I am new so if this question has been answered elsewhere please let me know. I have a LG V10 on AT&T running Android 6.0. This month Google Backup Transport has used almost 4 GB of data 98% in the background. Does the data from other google apps like Google Photos and Youtube get bundled into the Backup Transport. I back up a lot of pictures in Google Photos, but the Google Photo App says it has only used 40 MB. Just trying to understand what is involved in the Backup Transport.
    Thanks.

    Aloa,

    same issue here (in May everythig was normal) not much to tell.



    But since June 2016 the ammount of Data from "Android Serivices" went up right through the roof.





    I looked into the network traffic and it turned out "Google Backup Services" and contact management transferes a huge ammount of data. I solved this, since I installed on my rooted device a firewall that blocks such outgoing app traffic automaticly.
