I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and roughly every hour, I receive a notification that a backup attempt had failed.

Could this be due to the fact that I am not connected to the Internet? How can I stop this?

EDIT: I have turned off, wifi, 3g, sync, background, data and still the notification appears! How can I turn this off?

Is this via a notification? Which app? Do you have an internet connection? –  Liam W Nov 28 '12 at 12:56
yes, is via notification. its backup. i have turned off the wifi, im going to try in home later, and see if the cellphone make this backup and not notifying me again. –  user24122 Nov 28 '12 at 13:53
But what backup is this? Is it a schedule backup from Titanium Backup? Is this your contacts syncronizing with Verizon? You fail to mention any specifics of phone, carrier, app, etc. More info is needed for us to help you. –  Stephen Schrauger Nov 28 '12 at 17:06

Obviously no one appears to know exactly what you're talking about. Can you provide a screen shot? –  Al E. Dec 7 '12 at 17:34

If you are running on Android 4.x : Go to Settings -> Backup & reset -> Turn off "Back up my data"

If you are running on Android 2.x : Go to Settings -> Accounts & sync -> select your account and turn off backup and sync
