HASSio doesn’t come back after a snapshot restore (Resolved)

My microSD card crashed last week , so in the process of installing a new one.

Problem is that the Google backup / snapshot (size 1.4GB) does not restore correctly…

Performed the following steps:

  • Install HA on microSD
  • Install Samba + SSH
  • Restore from \backup directory

As soon as the restore is started the SSH/UI connection drops and the system can not be reached. This stayed for 12+ hours, then rebooted the RPI4 but still no connection possible. Already tried a second iteration but no improvement.

How to proceed?

Problem resolved. Apparently the backup was corrupted and had to restore the 3rd latest one. This one worked…
