How do I back up my data / restore my data in inFlow On-Premise?

Please note: we will sunset inFlow On-Premise on July 31, 2024. After sunset we will stop selling or activating new licenses for inFlow On-Premise and stop providing support (including online KB articles).

In the meantime we will still provide technical support to customers with an active Support Plan.


Your database (i.e. your inFlow On-Premise information) will backup automatically to a local folder on your computer.  That said, you can also back up your database manually through inFlow’s main menu to save it elsewhere (like an external drive or other computer).

To make a backup of your database:

  1. Click Main Menu > General > Backup Data.
  2. Select the location you’d like to save the backup.
  3. Click Next.

When you have a backup of your database it can be used to move your inFlow to another computer (if you have a replacement computer coming into the office) or if you wish to re-arrange your set up. It can also be used to reverse import changes as discussed in the section about imports.


To restore your data from an inFlow backup file:

  1. Click Main Menu > General > Restore Data.
  2. Select your backup file to restore from.
  3. Click Next.

Still unsure, or looking for more info?
