WAY TO BULK BACKUP (WHOLE APP CONTENT) [ share]

Postby hungns35 » Sun Aug 11, 2019 8:06 pm

Is there a way to BULK BACKUP of my app in the phone as a snapshot at any time:T including all decks with alll their media.
I have tens of decks with thousands of cards with photos its too time consuming to go deck by deck and use dropbox or google drive or your appserver (limitations).
I either don't use regular sync since I have too many cards (it takes a lot of time).

I also have fixes (corrections on the cards) while I am studying on the phone
So always the latest version of my cards and decks (including statistics) are the ones in my phone.

But What if my phone dies or lost or stolen. FD would be the biggest loss for me in such a stutaion , so its scary.

Hi,

If using Dropbox or OneDrive, you can perform a "full backup", which exports database and media. Exporting a single database should be quick, compared to exporting individual decks. The app should also only export media that doesn't currently exist in the cloud, so that part should be fast after an initial full export. Tap "Edit", then use "Backup/Restore" at bottom. Have you tried that.

The Sync also does the same thing, but automatically when you close the app. It takes a lot of time? It should work in the background when you close the app. In the Sync Setup screen, you can tell the app only to export the database, and not the individual text files.

If the above doesn't help, let me know.
