LINE has become an indispensable conversation tool in recent years. And almost everyone's mobile phones are equipped with one.

Even though LINE's "automatic backup" feature now allows users to back up their conversation history, many users still fail to back up LINE chat history, or the progress bar will be stuck. For example, an error notification may appear when you reach 70% and says, "The procession cannot perform properly!"

If you are in this situation, then read on to see how to solve LINE backup error issues.

Part 1: Wi-Fi or mobile network is unstable

If the Wi-Fi connection or the signal from your local network is not strong enough, or the phone data is slow down, the backup procession may not complete successfully.

At this position, you may either shift to a different Wi-Fi network or travel to a location where the signal is strong enough to attempt the backup connection again.

Part 2: Problems using or upgrading the new version of LINE

The latest version of LINE is 11.12.1. When on the "Homepage," you may access the settings menu by clicking the gear icon in the top right corner and dragging it down to the "About LINE" section at the bottom of the page. It will reveal the version of LINE you are currently using.

If you don't know about the new version, please visit the App Store or Google Play Store to download and install the latest LINE version.

Part 3: Insufficient phone memory or temporary storage space

Don't take the texts, pictures, videos, voice messages, and even stickers that you get and discard daily for granted. These will take up valuable storage space on your phone and will accumulate cache. If the backup fails, you may attempt "Delete Cache Data" to clear the data from your computer's cache. Try methods below to free up your storage.

1 Empty the temporary file

  • For iOS devices: Go to "Settings" > "Chat" > "Delete Data." The system will begin to read the cache data stored in the phone. Select "Cache Data" from the drop-down menu and then click "Remove Selected Data" to delete the cache in a single click.

  • not enough storage iPhone

  • For Android devices: Tap on "Settings" > "Storage" on your phone, searching for "LINE," then clicking "Clear Cache".

  • 2 Confirm the size of LINE and iCloud or Google Drive space

    In addition to removing the cache data, you can check the capacity of the LINE App in the phone's settings in the Apps menu. If it reaches 10GB, the amount of space may already be taken up excessively, and the backup may fail.

    Check the storage space of LINE in your phone:

    • iPhone: iOS "Settings" > "General" > "iPhone Storage"> "LINE".
    • Android: "Settings" > "Applications" > "LINE".

    Check the free space of iCloud and Google Drive:

    • iCloud: The iCloud app found in iOS Settings > Your Name > "iCloud." A bar graph displays the total storage space use; by clicking "Manage Storage Spaces," you can view the space usage of various applications at the bottom.
    • Google Drive: To access it straight from the Google Drive app, open it and choose "Storage" from the three-line menu in the top left corner of the screen. It's also possible to see the current capacity utilization information by selecting "View Details."
