Gmail for Android update gives you Google Account settings access”

Do you rely on Android backups? Personal info & privacy settings let you add a new photo to your profile and control the information others can see about you. Here's something you should know: Google can automatically delete Android backup for devices that have remained "inactive" for two months. The worst part is that Google will not inform you about the deletion before the entire Android backup is deleted. "We're always looking to improve the user experience on Android, and so we encourage users to leave feedback, as outlined in this forum post", TheNextWeb quoted the company as saying. They just deleted my data. Google has done this with Gmail for Android, as the search engine giant and Android owner has given the app an update that allows users to access their Google Account settings right within the app. He claims that he is shocked that Google has not sent him any notification regarding the same before deleting the backup.

When he contacted the Google Drive Support, he had found that there is no option to recover the backup despite paying for the service.

According to a report by The Verge, if the device is unused for two weeks, Google Drive displays an expiration date below the backup - a countdown of how much time a user is left with before it completely wipe off the data.

You can view recently used devices, giving you access to where and when you've accessed your information to ensure there's no suspicious activity.

The miffed Redittor revealed that he had parted ways with his Nexus 6P to switch to a new iPhone.

Do note, once removed from the Drive, there's no way to restore the data.
