Home User Manual Backup and restore

Back up your data

To back up your SmartRace data and settings, you can open the “Backup & restore” section in the main menu. To create a new backup, open the corresponding dialog under the “Backup” entry in the SmartRace main menu and click on the green “Create new backup” button. After the backup has been created, a dialog will open asking you where you would like to export the backup file to.

Important: Please make sure you export a backup to another location outside of SmartRace (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud or somewhere on your device). If you do not export it and uninstall the app, the backups will be lost as they are not exported automatically.

Restore backups

Please bear in mind that when restoring a backup all existing data will be deleted.

There are several ways to restore a backup. If you send a backup file (.srbk) to another device (e.g. via AirDrop), the operating system will ask you which app you want to open the file with. SmartRace should automatically be listed as an option. If you tap on it, the app will open and ask you whether you want to import the backup. Alternatively, you can also open the “Backup & Restore” section in the main menu, tap on the “Restore a backup” section and select a file from your device or from external sources (such as Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) by tapping on the dotted area.

After the restore process is complete, the app will restart. If the app keeps asking you whether you want to restore the backup file, please close it completely (using the task manager of your operating system) and restart it.
