    I have an S7 Edge and before doing a factory reset backed up everything to Samsung Cloud. This worked fine and when the phone was reset I managed to restore everything just fine. Brilliant. But now I want to backup again a week later but the backup keeps failing. I tried removing the account, clearing the cache and data but still no luck. Has anyone else had this problem and/or know of a solution?

    Samsung U.K. Twitter support suggest using a computer and smartswitch.

    Nothing like circumventing the original question !!

    Update from Samsung U.K. Support on Twitter

    "Hi. This is an ongoing issue, and we'd recommend that you back up your data using an alternative cloud source, such as Google Drive. You can find instructions on how to back up data here: What are the different methods to backup or transfer data from my Samsung Galaxy device? ^RS"

    Some have received an OTA update and it seems to have fixed the problem. Just need to wait for the update to hit your phone. I'm still patiently waiting myself.

    Yeah probably best. How do you remove the account and clear the cache and data? I'm going to give that a try too

    I tried that last week. No joy either. But if you go into settings > accounts you should see Samsung account and it should give you the option to remove account. Good luck.

    Settings ---> Accounts ---> Samsung Account ---> [click on your email] ---> More (top right) ---> Remove account
    For cache/data: Settings ---> Applications ---> Application manager ---> More ---> Show system apps and then you can find Samsung account and Samsung Cloud. But I don't think this'll help.
