    Where exactly are you seeing this? If you go to Settings>Google>Backup, under Active Backups, when was the last backup for each component?

    Open your Google Drive, swipe in from the left, and tap Backups. Is anything listed there?

    This is exactly what I do:
    Settings - Google - Backup - (Backup to google drive checked -account is correct - active backups all say waiting for backup)
    Next go to System - Backup - (options LG backup and restore - that works)( Google Backup - Google backup which takes you back to google and the settings under google)
    Select Accounts - Google account -sync - everything is checked and it shows today's date everything is synced.
    Go to Google Drive - click on 3 bars in left hand corner - Then backups and it says your device is not backed up - select backup settings and it takes you back to backup under your settings......
    Thats what I am experiencing....Please help if you can

    What happens if you turn off LG Backup & Restore? I'm wondering if that might interfering somehow.

    Also, do you have any 3rd party battery-saver or mobile data management apps installed?
