    Default Nova Launcher - where is my backup?

    So, I had to restore my phone. Before backing up, I did what I thought was the sensible thing by backing everything up to Kries and then backing up Nova Launcher. Now, as I'm restoring, I go to "restore previous Nova backup, and the "Device Storage" shows that there are "no backups in this location". Wtf!? How frustrating. I am also no longer on the prime version of Nova Launcher... ugh, I knew this would take all day.

    Did you back up to the external SD card or to Device Storage?

    If you used the default, external SD, it's in /data/com.teslacoilsw.launcher/backup

    I have had times where the file gets corrupted. That is one reason why I put a copy somewhere else like Drive.

    Thanks for your email about this. So when I backup, there is only one option given, called "Device Storage."

    Last I knew Nova can only save to the internal storage. But I have gone and copy/pasted to my PC and cloud storage.

    Thanks for the information! I think I lost this data, but in the future I'll be sure to do it this way
