Why WhatsApp Cannot find backup to Google Drive?
There are a few reasons why WhatsApp may not be able to find your backup on Google Drive.
First, make sure that you are signed in to the correct Google account on your phone. If you have multiple accounts connected to your device, WhatsApp will only back up to the account that is currently active.
Next, check that you have enough space in your Google Drive account. WhatsApp backups can be quite large, and if your account is full, the backup will fail. You can check how much space you have left by opening the Google Drive app and tapping the hamburger icon in the top left corner. Then, tap “Settings” and “Manage Space.”
Finally, make sure that you have a strong and stable internet connection. If your connection is poor or intermittent, the backup may fail.
