The backups arn't visible. I've tried to extract a contact backup with no success. You have to restore to or via a mobile device.

Would recommend using IFTTT if you aren't successful.

You get a few recipes that allow you to update contacts to a spreadsheet or Google drive account. You can also set it to upload photos.

Hi Hamish - I set it up in Additional settings - Backup & reset - Backup my data: ON
It will typically backup your phone contacts into your Google contacts, your phone calender into your Google calendar, not into Google drive per se.

If you have the Google photos app installed it will do videos and photos if you configure it.

What particular data are you looking for on your Google account?

Hi Hamish - My phone syncs all the important data and all the apps work 100% - so I think I need to be happy with that - thanks for your interest - Regards
