    • The Backup settings page is displayed. It is strongly recommended that you simply skip to the bottom of the page, and click Jump to final step.

    • If preserving the structure of your Gradebook is not important to you, you may also use the Backup settings page to "cherry-pick" individual items to include in the backup. By default, all items are selected for inclusion in the backup. Uncheck the items you do not want to include, then click Next (rather than Jump to final step as shown above). 
    • Click Next for each screen until you get to the summary showing what will be included (green check) or excluded (red ×). 
      x indicates note included, check indicates included

    • Leave the default Filename or enter your own, being careful not to remove the .mbz file extension. The default filename includes the date and time at the end.
    • Confirm the Backup settings, then scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the Perform Backup button.

  3. Wait for the message: The backup file was successfully created. Click Continue.
    Success message. Click continue.

  4. After creating the backup file, the filename will appear in your User private backup area list. You should immediately click the Download link to the right of the backup file name to save the backup file to your computer.


    A The backups you create in the User private backup area will be retained and available for download for 30 days. You'll receive an email to remind you before the backup is deleted, so you can download it before their removal. The best idea is to download it when you create it!

    You can upload and restore your backup file (filename.mbz) to any other AsULearn course at any time of your choosing.
