Backups Haven't Run in Almost Two Weeks

I have a one gigabyte droplet (in the NYC2 region, if it matters), with Automatic Backups turned on. For some reason, the backups went from running approximately ever two days, it has not run for about 12 days. I have not changed any settings in the control panel. There has not be any software change on the droplet, either.

Is there some potential cause I am not aware of? Would toggling it off, and back on be possible, and if so, helpful?

Thanks in advance

Same problem here!

I am paying for backups, but they don’t happen “automatically” unless I submit a ticket, this is ridiculous! We need an ETA for actually FIXING this problem.

I have some from 3 days ago now, seems to be all better.

It’s been 12 days too for our droplets in SFO.
