    The OnePlus Switch app says you can copy the backup to the computer. But I still can't find it on how to do that. Anyone who knows how to back it up to PC?

    ‍♂️ I have already done it, of course. I just copied it BACK to the phone and THERE the Switch app does not find it, although it is shown in the file-manager.

    JESUS Christ!

    Please copy the folder opbackup/MobileBackup to the PC and copy it back into the phone's internal storage after flashing.
    This should allow the OnePlus Switch app to discover the initial backup file. There is also another backup folder in the internal storage and I assume this leads to the confusion for many users.

    Yeah i found it right there. Internal Storage > opbackup > MobileBackup
    Copying it to PC is ******* slow though using USB. 54GB is about 1.5 hour.

    So after taking a look into this problem: Just copying the backup to your PC will not give you the option to restore data by copying it back into the oneplus switch folder on your new or resetted phone. There is a CONF file in the oplauncher folder which will be missing then. I do not know if ust copying this along with the backup will solve the issue. Just warning everyone here to follow the advice recommended above.

    Is very simple to backup our files with Oneplus Backup.
    1. After use that apps, you must use adb pull /sdcard/opbackup . to trasfer entire folder on your desktop.
    2. Format your device and after setupwizard you must use adb push your_path/Desktop/opbackup /sdcard/

    I had this problem, solved it by doing another backup and then asked it to restore and both the copied backup and the new one were therw so I choice the old one and it worked.

    Hello, this is not working for me. I have OP3. Switch is not locating the Mobile Backup folder at all, even though I have copied it from my PC to the phone in the correct folder with the correct name. Please help!

    I did this as well but simply by following OnePlus advice but now I have transferred the back up back to opbackup/MobileBackUp but OPswitch cant see it. I fail to see what I've done wrong.
