    I enabled the automated google drive backup in the new tasker version (5.5), but even after waiting a couple days and making edits to tasks in the meantime, I'm not seeing any backup file on my drive.

    You have to be charging and on an unmetered connection (Wifi) for it to work, so maybe that was it?

    Hmm well I charge it on wifi daily, so I would only expect this to be the case if the backups only run at a specific time of day (at which I wasn't charging on the days it didn't work)

    I actually use Google's scheduling to do the backup, so I don't have complete control on when it runs unfortunately. It seems to work for most people! But you can always schedule a backup yourself with the Data Backup task :)

    That's no problem. As long as it works every once in a while I'm fine since I don't update tasks to often :).
