Backup process and policy for Comindware Tracker
To protect your data from hardware failure, viruses or accidental deletion is very important to make backups. Comindware Tracker offers such an important feature and allows you to make backups every time you need. All the projects, users, tasks, progress on tasks, comments, and attached files will be saved. This procedure is different for cloud and on-premise accounts.
Backing up cloud accounts
If you use Comindware Tracker in the cloud, you can manage the backups right from your user account at the Comindware website. To start with, go to http://www.comindware.com and log in to your user account there.
Once you are in, go to the “Products and Subscriptions” menu, find your Comindware Tracker account details and scroll down to the “Backup Management” area. Here you can see your backup history for the last 7 days.
Don’t be surprised if you see a whole list of backups already created for your product instance. All cloud accounts are automatically backed up once a day. So, you can always restore your data even if you forgot to make a backup yourself.
In addition to that, you can make backups manually, for example before making some major changes in your account. Just click on the “Create backup” button give your new backup a name.
To restore the backup click on the “Restore” button next to the corresponding backup and wait a minute. Just keep in mind that all your tasks progress will be bounced back to the backed up stage as well.
Backing up on-premise accounts
In on-premise account there is a “Backup management” menu in the Administration settings. Here you can create backups manually and select the folder they will be stored in. More information about backups and restore process for on premise account you can find here.
