- Navigate to Tools > Backup/Restore.
- Click on the Restore button, and the dialog box to the right will appear.
- Click the Select Date field and a calendar will appear, where days when backups were created will be highlighted. Click the most recent date.
- You will then see a list of any backups created on that day, along with a Download button. Click this, and that backup will be saved to the computer you are using to connect to HS4 with.
Backup Save Location
If you have HS4 installed in a custom installation, you can change the save location for backups very easily by typing in the desired folder address. The default save location on Windows is C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS4\html\backups, while it is /usr/local/HomeSeer/html/backups on Linux. If you are using a HomeTroller, it is not recommended to change the default save location for backups.
