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

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?
