 +===== Cloud Backup of Maps =====
 +Unlike **[[manual:user_guide:maps_locusmaps:|LoMaps]]**, maps of our **commercial map partners** (Swisstopo, SHOCart, Freytag&Berndt...) are downloaded directly from their servers and **each such download** is processed by the partner as a **new map purchase**. Therefore, we strongly recommend to **back up your maps right after downloading**. You can do so on **your PC** or another external storage but the most comfortable and flexible way is **cloud backup**.
 +
 +Locus Map cooperates with **[[http://www.dropbox.com|Dropbox]]** and **[[https://www.google.com/drive/|Google Drive]]**.
 +
 +If you need to back up your map, tap the option in the **map action menu**:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:mapbackup01.png?nolink |}}
 +**Progress and result** of the backup can be seen in **[[manual:user_guide:notification_center|notification center]]**:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:mapbackup04.png?nolink |}}
 +==== Cloud storage setup ====
 +When you use this option for the first time, it is necessary to **define your map backup storage**:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:mapbackup02.gif?nolink |}} 
 +After allowing Dropbox or GDrive to process Locus files, **select folder**:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:mapbackup02.png?nolink |}}
 +Cloud backup storage is set:\\ {{ :manual:user_guide:mapbackup03.png?nolink |}}
