Backing Up Data

I have created a few forms using Form Builder and don't want to have to re-create them in the event of a computer crash etc. Is there any way to back them up? I have created a few presets such as groups, styles etc. It would also be handy to know if I can move these from my workstation to the laptop (using my 2 activations) so that I can work on stuff on the move without having to re-create it again.

The reason I am posting this here and not in the FB forum is because I have the Sub Library and so would like to know as a general principle if I can do this with ALL EXTENSIONS. There doesn't seem to be a 'General' forum so I couldn't post it there.

Jeremy,

I have two methods that I use one is to save reusable code as a snippet which you can copy and move from machine to machine, the other is that I have a "base" site which contains all the features that I would normally use in my projects that I use when starting a new project.

Hi Dave. Thanks for your reply. I'm interested in your 'base' site idea. How do you do that? It might be helpful for me as I tend to have certain things that I want to preload when starting a new site.

Jeremy,

I have a site set up on my local server specifically for that purpose plus a mirror kept in a sub domain on my site for testing in a live environment, you can see it here http://abc-widgets.i-cre8.com it may not look much but there is a lot going on under the hood.

Dave,

Strong work.

Jeremy,

Another thing you could do is compile a set of different code snippets and save it in your Dreamweaver "snippets" folder. It's a good idea to get stuff like CSS Resets, CSS Core Code, and something I couldn't live without - my PHP Core Functions file that I have continued to add functions to over time which I tend to use in every site.

Best regards,

Brian
