Backup files allow you to restore your data if something went wrong and you want to go back to the way things were previously.
Backup files are created by the app:
- During import;
- When you turn on Sync;
- When you restore from a backup on another device;
- During every app update;
- In some other cases.
Backup files are NOT created automatically over periods of time (every month, every week, etc.). You can create a backup file manually: on iOS/Android go to More > Backup and tap Add; on macOS go to File > Backup and click Add on Windows go to File > Preferences > Backup.
Backups are stored only on the device where they were created and are not synced across devices. Money Pro server and iCloud keep and sync only the current data. Please remember that when you reinstall the app on Windows, Android, and iOS devices, your backups are deleted. If you want to save your backups on iOS and Android devices, select More > Backup > swipe left on the file you need in order to see the export option. On Windows and macOS devices you can click a backup with the right mouse button to find its location.
Backups have the same extension and can be opened in all the app platforms. If you open a backup file on a device, the data from the backup will be pushed to all the devices, connected to this one via iCloud Sync or Money Pro Sync.
