  3. After clicking on the Backup button, click on the Create Backup button as shown below.

  4. A pop-up will appear that allows you to set a Backup description. This is optional, but once you create multiple backups, setting a description will help to remember why you created the backup.

  6. After setting the backup, this is how your backup will appear with the date, time, description, and size of the backup. This can then be used to restore or download later on.

The Rapyd platform takes daily automatic backups. The time can be set from the Backups section of the dashboard - simply click on Change in the Backup Schedule box.

A pop-up will appear that allows you to change to a different time (UTC).
