I think you should provide backup feature

Er, if you have a cloud subscription, they do indeed back up to the cloud. Did you mean something else?

Hi Victoria, we had this discussion recently and Adobe has answered that there is no individual restore option. And the cloud itself is not a backup. I would love to have a backup and restore functionality like we have in LR Classic

This is a LR mobile request, how would would you imagine it working Peter?

Hi Victoria, yes, very good question when we consider only the mobile version on iOS or Android, but such a backup and restore function is even not available on the LR CC desktop version, all I can do is to manually save the Originals with the xmp file, the album / folder structure is not saved.
When we talk only about the mobile versions then Adobe could implement an individual restore function which has access to their normal backup system and include the album and folder structure as well. For pictures we have the un-delete functionality since the last release.
Another option could be the use of the new local file system we have in iOS and external SD cards for Android.

So the question for the original poster is what kind of backup is he asking for? Photos? Settings? Organization? And against what kind of disaster?
