Can I save a back-up copy of the site on my own PC?
or would this be a pointless excercise

Hello Phil

To save a back-up copy of your Yola website on your computer, you would need to be able to download your website. I'm afraid that this is not possible with Yola.

What you can do is download the files uploaded to your Yola File Manager to your computer as zip folders and create the same folder system as in the File Manager on your computer. This would be at least a back up for your files.

Otherwise, would you mind letting us know why you'd like to save a back-up copy at all? Your website in your Yola account is safe.

Or did you think of restoring a backed-up version in your account in case you shouldn't be happy with your current site any more? For this purpose I'd like to suggest to you that you can just use the Sitebuilder to make a back up version of each of your pages. Just click on Page > Save Page As in the blue menu bar, and you can name the page something like "Index-archived" or "about-us-archived" etc. This process may be a bit more laborious, but the advantage is that you can restore an individual page of your website if you're not happy with the current page any longer. Then you can replace the current page by the archived page by opening the archived page and selecting Page > Save Page As and typing the name of the current page into the dialogue box. You will then be asked to confirm that you want to overwrite the current page by your archived page.

Hope this helps!
