How to create a Data Backup in Spiceworks?

To back up your database in Spiceworks all you have to do is:

  1. Log in to your Spiceworks account.
  2. Follow this path Settings → Global Settings → Backup Configuration.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Backup button".


Spiceworks will then create a file and place it in the folder specified in the Backup location section.

Important Note: The built-in backup can backup up to 4GB of data. If your DB and data directories (in C:\Program Files\Spiceworks) are larger, check your help desk to see if you could archive any old tickets or remove any exceptionally large attachments.

Backup fail?

Email support@spiceworks.com to get your case investigated.
