  1. Hi Arpit, Thanks for the tips. I have a problem though. I can backup. But to restore from the backup, under “Backup”, I get a different menu: It shows under Content (though that heading is not there) “Other data” with “Google photos” and “Contacts”. However, the main problem is that if I click on any of these, it does not give option of Automatic Restore. I cannot find the Restore option anywhere. Even in Google Drive, it shows my backed up data. But the only option is to delete, not restore. Can you help?

    My phone is Moto G5s plus. I did a factory reset after backing up to Google Drive.
