Create the backup file

You may want to keep all your data (your training patterns, statistics, reminders and settings) on your SD card to secure them, or just to be more opened to new experiments with your custom trainings.

  1. Tap on "Backup" in Main menu.
  2. Choose "Create backup" item in "Memory card" section.
  3. Confirm it, pressing "Create".
  4. You will see the toast with a message that the file is successfully created. Note that there is a path to your backup file in your toast.
  • NB! If you have a backup file created before, it will be replaced with the new one.

Google Drive

Create the backup file

You can create the backup file on your Google Drive so you can have your data safe, plus this way you can sync your data through all of your devices. The first time you do that you have to be online; next times there's no such need, as Google Drive will be synced once you go online.

  1. Tap on "Backup" in Main menu.
  2. Choose "Create backup" item in "Google Drive" section.
  3. Choose Google account you'd like to create the backup at.
  4. Confirm your choice, pressing "Allow" (this and previous paragraph will appear just for the first time).
  5. You will see the toast with a message that the file is successfully created.
  • NB! If you have a backup file created before, it will be replaced with the new one.
