Autobackup starts after phone is turned on, not at the time it was scheduled

I have problems with Automatic backup nowadays.


My configuration is: repeat every 3 day at 4:30 AM. But it doesn`t work like that. I had a situation about 15 times that autobackup started after I restarted a phone (during normal day usage). So it looks like autobackup missed its chance do start during night and it is suddenly reminding about it after phone restart.


It is not cool, because autobackup blocks access to Locus. And Locus is constantly being used on my phone, and restarts are sometimes in a critical times, when I`m recording a track. What is the worst, it is impossible to stop autobackup process. This is terrible, because the only way to get access to Locus is to kill the Locus process first (to brute force finish of autobackup), and then start Locus again.


Please make a backup process abortable. It is really bad in critical moments:/

I noticed the same.


Locus Pro is not running as a service.


The last 5 days only one time at the wanted time, the other backups were always after a reboot of the smartphone (ICS 4.04).


I wrote this earlier at least two times to Menion but it was not accepted.

great. at least there is two of us. I think Menion should focus on fixing bugs nowadays, instead adding a new features.

Hi guys,


I hope that I may close this topic as "Solved". In latest 2.20.0 version, Auto-backup should be finally working as expected.
