Backup my eM Client files

I’m new to eM Client. Currently all my eM files are stored on my C: drive. How do I back them up to and external hard drive?

Auto Backup…

Change Target directory to point to your choice of location

Thank you. Is there a way to run Backup by demand?


Is there a way to run Backup by demand?

If you want the manually backup eM Client anytime (apart from the automatic periodic backups that @sunriseal already advised), then go to “Menu / Backup” (Pc) or “File / Backup” (Mac). You can see when the manual backup is complete in “Show Operations” via the drop-down on the right of Refresh at the top left.

Note: Make sure you then regularly backup your Documents / eM Client profile backup folder and copy that to another external or cloud drive incase you need to restore your backup later.

I highly recommend that you implement the auto backup and run it daily.

I use translator to do this post for more Backup.
I use and it works perfect, it instructs in English
Here you have all instruction, and click link:


That comes from my post here, which includes full instructions with screenshots. It is only if you want to use some advanced options. Using the settings in Menu > Settings > Backup is sufficient in most cases.
