Yep..This works! I also found that if you change the name of the previous backup instead of deleting it, it will work. I have been trying to figure this out for 2 months. Thanks!
Cool, glad it worked for you. Good job!

Funny thing is my work laptop has DM on it as well and it still does the backup. I tried uninstalling DM and reinstalling it and the same thing still happens. Wish I could get that working again... Any useful suggestions are welcome. Thanks. :dunno:

What is happening is that you have backed up your apps before, just like I had. I bet you have a copy stored on your computer somewhere...DM is seeing that copy with whatever apps are in it and that is why they are not included in the new backup. You can do one of three things...Either move that folder into somewhere else or delete it or rename it...I upgraded DM but I also moved that backup folder I had, which is why mine worked after that..
Gonna go try that right now. Thanks for the suggestion. Yes, I have kept multiple backups on a D drive and the backup stores to the C drive, but I'll try moving them off anyway and see what happens. Thanks.

Wish I seen this post a couple days ago, been busy. I could have mentioned that updating DM fixes it. I had the same problem about a week or so ago. I even removed the PIN folder off the PC and that didn't even work in my case, it wouldn't even create a new folder, lol.
It's like that part of DM broke for some reason and the only reasoning I could think of that might have caused it, was the newer versions of the OS, as that was the only thing that did change on my system and phone.
Well, I'm glad you guys got it fixed
