Create a backup
For security and procedural reasons, it is recommended that you create a backup copy of the complete contents of your course. This procedure is automated. It allows you to create either a complete backup or a partial backup, based on your selection of what to save, using a few simple clicks. To begin backup:
click on the Create backup link in the Backup and import section,
on the next page, select whether you want a full copy or just a selection of elements (in which case you will have to select them on the next page and click Validate),
click the Create backup button to launch the procedure.

The backup is made available in the form of a compressed file which you can download on your computer. It is also stored on the server for quick restoration if needed.
