Title: Mobile Backup

Why cant we choose which folder where the backup will be located? For people who actually dont put their files in random places, this is a vital option!

The backup folder name is automatically generated by Avast Mobile Backup and it depends on your device ID.
It is not put in random places.

I didn't mean that avast put it in random places. But i dont like the avast folder in places where i dont want them. If i want to put this backup in a folder where i store other backups, I should be able to do so. This is a simple setting and you should be able to set the location in 2015.

Isn't it stored on Google Drive?
If so you can simply copy/move it a place where you want it.

Since it is a backup, it will be used every week after the set schedule. Moving the folder will result that the program will create a new folder every time it backups my data. Its not really helping my storage location for more than a day or two.
