How do I save backups to cloud or separate computer?

Hi! Yeah, you can make backups in version 4.9.1. Navigate to 'Extensions' -> 'Cura backups' -> 'Manage backups'. From there, you can sign in with an Ultimaker Account (or create one if you haven't already), and create a backup. You can also enable 'auto backup', which will store a backup of all your settings every day (if you start Cura) automatically. Once you've created a backup, you can restore it via this window as well (this will wipe your current settings and replace them with the ones in the backup).

    The backups are securely stored in Ultimaker's cloud. You can restore a backup in any installation of Cura as long as you're signed in with your Ultimaker Account (for example you can create a backup on your desktop and restore it on your laptop, as a way to synchronise settings between Cura installations).


    There is currently no option to download the backups and store them on your own computer or cloud service. However you could quite easily achieve this by using for example the Selective Sync feature of Dropbox and selecting the Cura user folder as one of the folders to synchronise.
