While your data is backed up every night in the cloud, there are circumstances under which you might want to save a backup locally. If, for example, you're planning to import data into an existing database, it's a good idea to make a backup first. If something goes wrong or the results aren't what you expected, restoring a backup is an easy way to undo things.
BACKUP YOUR DATA
This saves your cloud data onto your local computer. Your entire database is saved as a set of SQL statements. If you want just a portion of your data or want it in a form that can be used in a spreadsheet, open the screen you want, clickthe Reports icon in the grid menu then one of the Export options.
RESTORE A BACKUP FILE
This restores the data saved with the Backup command to the cloud. Your entire database is restored. If you want to update a portion of your database from a file, consider importing it.
