On this page you can create backups and download existing backups.  You can also schedule a recurring backup by clicking on the scheduled backup settings icon. Please be aware that if you wish to keep a number of backups before they are removed (for example you wish to perform a daily backup and keep the last 7 days worth of backups), this figure is reset each time you edit your scheduled backup settings. The old backups are not deleted automatically as they are no longer part of the active scheduled backup set.
