Custom Backup/Restore

The program has a Custom Mode Backup/Restore functionality that requires you to setup FTP properties for your Website or Off-Site storage location and will Backup/Restore your data files to that location.

The Custom Mode Backup/Restore cannot be used to send us and get your data back from us to look for problems or fix your data. You must use the Lazy Dog Mode for that.
