Course backups

Mistakes happen – but losing your work doesn’t have to. With Adapt from Can Studios all your courses are backed up daily by default; you can also manually backup a course and restore from backup at any time.


Automatic course backups

With Adapt from Can Studios all courses are backed up daily by default, provided changes have been made.

Each daily backup will overwrite the previous one – so you can only roll back by one day.

Taking a manual course backup

You can also manually take a course backup at any time by following these steps:

  1. Go to your main Adapt dashboard
  2. Click on the cog symbol of the course you want to backup dashboard
  3. Select “Create backup”
  4. You’ll be prompted to enter a description of your backup to help you remember why you backed-up at this point.

The course will be backed up immediately.

Restoring courses from backup

Go to your Adapt dashboard
Click on the main menu in the top left corner and choose Backup Management. You’ll see all your course backups listed in date order – labelled as:
– Manual backups
– Automatic backups
Select the backup you want and click the Create from backup button.
The course will now appear with the other courses on your main dashboard as:

Backup of ….

It won’t overwrite the most recent version of the course.

Server backups

As well as course backups, we also take regular backups of your entire server – just in case.
