Download Backups

You can download an archive of any backup of your repositories. There is the Download this backup button in the repository card:

download GitHub repository backup from Cloudback dashboard

Download dialog

Once you click the Download this backup button the dialog will be shown. The dialog reminds you that the archive’s password will be sent to your email right after the download process is initiated.

What if the file is deleted?

There are a few situations when we could not download a backup archive:

  • The archive file has been removed from the storage
  • The archive file has been moved to another location
  • The storage is not available or is not accessible

In any of these cases you will get the File not found notification:

GitHub repository backup file not found
