According to the log I don't think the file is being copied. This isn't a full debug log so it's hard to know for sure but I'm not seeing any messaging after the file copy has started. There are a bunch of pydrive errors. This is interesting since you aren't using Google Drive but the class must allocate upon start anyway. Since you're on Android this might be a Python 2.6 issue again. I tried to fix these as maybe these errors are stopping the whole program from running. Try this branch and see if you get different results: https://github.com/robweber/xbmcbackup/tree/pydrive_fix

I use this addon to backup Kodi to my NAS at 3pm daily, sometimes my NAS isnt online and the backup starts and the first notification is "gathering file lists...". Problem is with my NAS being offline this notification doesnt disappear and i cant figure out how to make it disappear without a reboot.

Any ideas on how to stop this notification appearing when my NAS is offline?

Make sure your NAS is on or don't start a backup.

In all seriousness though I think the file write IO is probably hanging. Even though the message says "gathering files" there is actually a very small write operation trying to hit the remote store at that time as well. It is trying to create the backup folder and validation file. This operation is handed off to the xbmcvfs python module, which could very well just hang as the store isn't available. A debug log would probably show more info if I was to try and fix this particular problem.

I believe I have Backup Version 1.0.5 installed and backup is currently not working stating error check log.

I initially posted information with link to kodi log file in this post

Any help appreciated, already tried to simply remove and re-install backup addon but kodi advises me that I cannot do this as its linked to Leopold addon

I see on that thread you have fixed this issue already, is that right? The error you posted had something to do with a file not existing.

Yes its sorted now by removing Dev Update addon, then backup, then reinstalling backup and then Dev Update addon in that order, apologies for not updating status in this thread.
