Does Avast intend to delete my Drive data? Say it ain't so!
« on: September 24, 2017, 03:28:18 PM »
I have been notified that data backed up by the regrettably discontinued Avast Mobile Backup will be deleted on or about October 19, 2017.  Google Drive is mentioned, and I understand that my Drive account is one of the places where Avast has stored my data.

My Drive account isn't Avast's space, though, and I wish the message had explicitly stated that my Drive data will be untouched when the data stored on Avast's servers is deleted (e.g., my backed-up contacts, etc.)

Please read the other thread(s) where it is explained.

On a note, it is foolish to have only one backup.
