Avast Backup (MyAvast website vs Google Drive)
« on: August 16, 2013, 03:48:22 PM »
Hello guys,

I Have a question:

I realized that all the information that was backup (contacts, sms and pictures) and were submitted to my google drive account, now appears in my avast website. Cool.

In my avast website you have an option to delete an specific contact, sms, pictures, etc. However, when you do this, the contact, sms, picture, etc that you deleted is not removed from google drive.

Is this behavior by design?

Whats the relation between the backup data displayed in my avast website and the data submitted to the google drive?

Thanks for your time!

All data are stored ot Google Drive. My Avast only knows, what is backed up - it is sent via application, so the effect of change is only between application itself and my avast portal. The data on GDrive are untouched.

actually when deleting e.g. images on my.avast.com you have a checkbox there "also delete from google drive".
