Hi menion,
I have selected auto backup every day at 15:00.
But I get the backups the last 5 days at 16:08, 08:59, 08:55 and 11:35.
Do you use a service to made these backups?

You should change the backup manager menu:
It is really bad to see only enable or disable, I would see a normal menu to enable, disable and edit the settings without stopping the task.

Today Locus made a auto backup at 15:00 instead of 16:00 as selected.

My internal time is correct of course.


Edit: I was wrong with the selected time, it was really 15:00, so Locus pro did his job today.

Hi tramp,
  this time is not precise one. Android system itself decide when it will call Locus to do backup. Also when you're currently using Locus, backup cannot be completed, so it will happen in another time ...

  I don't know if this is a problem and I should do something with it or not? From my point of view, as a user, I don't think about correct times. I'm glad that it do some backups and that's all I need to know ...

Does Locus perform a backup if "Locus as a service" is set?
I love this setting but I'd like to have regular backup as well...

yes it did. Imagine this "Automatic backup" as a completely separate app. It just check if Locus itself is running, and when not, it do backup on background. It really doesn't matter if you have enabled "Locus as a service" or not
