Backing up Syncrify itself

Syncrify is a great tool to backup data. However, you should also consider backing up Syncrify itself. This page talks about the step required to backup Syncrify.

What to backup

The most important folder in Syncrify is the $INSTALL_DIR\config folder, where $INSTALL_DIR is the location on the disk where Syncrify is installed. If you have the contents of this folder saved on a different machine, rebuilding Syncrify is very easy after a server crash.

Syncrify automatically backups the config folder every day. The backed up data is zipped into files that are located in the $INSTALL_DIR\config\archive folder and are named after weekdays. For example,, and so on. This allows you to restore the config folder as long as the disk is still accessible.

Steps to rebuild Syncrify after a crash

  • We recommend rebuilding it on a similar operating system
  • Install Syncrify on the new machine
  • Stop Syncrify
  • Replace the entire config folder with the original copy
  • Start Syncrify
