Hello,

There is the possibility to export (download) backups from unimus but only equipment at a time.
Would it be feasible to massively export (download) all the backups from all the devices at once?

Thank for this great product and its continuous improvement.

Are you looking to download the latest backup of all devices, or all backups of all devices?

I would take the latests, but the ability to do a full export of all the versions would be nice also, I guess.

Anything further on this?

I recently had an outage of a device... Kinda stuck in a rock and a hard place, knowing that I've got a copy of the backup in Unimus, and yet not having access to it because the device I access Unimus through is down...

It would be nice to download "all" or "selected" backups to a folder / zip / something, so that at least a recent copy could be available...

I've just downloaded a copy of all my main devices manually, and that's a little tedious...

It would be nice to be able to select a whole bunch and have them emailed or downloaded as a zip etc.

Thanks.

I also today ran into a use case for this. I am archiving a project that has several devices in it > 100. i would like to keep a copy of the most recent backup of each. downloading them in 1 zip file would be a nice option.

I'll add my +1 to this to make it easy to get offsite and have available in an emergency

Update: this has now been implemented and will be released in 2.0.0
(2.0.0 to enter public Beta testing in the coming weeks)

We have added a new "Export backups" button to the "Backups" page, which allows a selection between "All backups of all devices" and "Latest backup of all devices".
It will generate a .zip file according to the selection, which you can then download.

As a sidenote:
There is also an API endpoint for getting the latest backups of all devices (which is present since 1.9.x and later) - so that can be used to automate the retrieval of backups from Unimus as well.

Please subscribe either to the Beta forum section or the Announcements forum section to get notified when 2.0.0 enters public Beta, or is released :)
