Couldn't get backup to work at all. Have removed most files from the mass memory (7GB free), have a totally empty SD card. Backing up to either dropbox or SD card fails with this message in the logfile;

.... /tmp/vault/vault/Accounts/blobs/accounts.dump

Standard error was: tar: Removing leading `/' from member names

[UI] Finalising operation

[UI] Triggered backups upload to cloud account 21 from dir /tmp/jolla-vault-cloud

[UI] Sync error: Unable to start sync!

Any ideas?

EDIT; There is a similar error here, but it's not really solved, I didn't get anything like the same problem, there are no folders in my dropbox and nothing has been transferred.

remove dropbox account and create it again.

The tar message is standard here and is unrelated. Are there any other relevant logs, or are you able to post the complete logs here?

Yup, removal and re-adding the db account worked, lovely!
