Backup your data
We are offering a way to back your data offline. For example, you can always access and restore data if someone accidentally deleted an important project, task or discussion.
Note: Backups we provide cannot be restored automatically but only are a structured data you can access to reimport to Freedcamp via XLS import or by copy/pasting backup data back to Freedcamp.
Backups contain all attached files (excluding GDrive/OneDrive/Dropbox files as they are not physically stored in Freedcamp) and the much requested XLS files containing issues, tasks, time records, and milestones. You will find such files below each of your backed up project folder.
All data entered to Freedcamp directly - tasks, comments etc. are also in XML format – language similar to HTML you can open using your web browser but, most importantly, easily parse-able so you can write some code easily to import it into different systems.
In addition, you can find global XLS export files containing records from all of your projects for the same application making it easier for you and faster to run your daily, weekly or monthly reports.
Monthly backups are created on the first date of each month, weekly - each Monday.
Each generated backup is stored by us for 90 days. Please download your backups periodically.
Backups older than 30 days are stored in long-term storage by Freedcamp. If you need to access a backup older than 30 days you will be prompted to email us requesting a backup retrieval for a specific date or a range of dates. Once this request is received by Freedcamp support it will take one day to retrieve backup(s). We will email you access links or post them to you in Freedcamp with your permission (for extra security). Backups will be made available to you to access during 5 calendar days.
Monthly backups are available on the Freelancer plan and above, Weekly - on the Business plan and above. Daily backups are available on the Enterprise plan. Backups are enabled by default when you subscribe.
