Does the Cura Backup plugin backup printers?  Wanting to backup my start/end g-code do I don't lose it.  Can't find way to export printers in cura, was hoping backup may do it for me.  I can't find anything that says what is backs up.

    The cloud backup plugin makes a backup of everything that is in the user data folder of Cura. This includes printers and their custom settings. As it back-ups and restores the complete directory (not only loose bits and pieces), the chance of it going corrupt is quite low. You can find the code on how the backup is made and restored on GitHub. Once you have made a backup, you'll also see in the plugin's UI the number of printers, materials, profiles and plugins that were backed up.

     

    Note that the plugin currently only allows to restore backups that were made in the same version of Cura, but we're working on supporting forward compatibility in the future.

    I think it may have been down to using 3.4 and 3.5 beta, then back to 3.4, then 3.6, back to 3.4 and finally 4.0 (Now with a fresh clean install).

     

    So quick question for you - will the beta 2 backup have an issue with the final release of 4.0?

    The backups plugin was added in the Marketplace with Cura 3.6, so the previous versions were not impacted.

    Unfortunately Beta2 and final release backups are not compatible as they have different version numbers. Again this is something we have in sight to fix.
