How do I create a backup?

Cloud Backup

With the Cloud Backup premium feature, you can backup all your notes and save them to a folder in Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive. A backup can be restored if you have performed a factory reset, uninstalled the app, or deleted notes you didn't mean to. You can also setup a backup interval to ensure your backup is always up-to-date.

Local Backup

You can create a backup file of all your notes in Squid and save it to your device, external storage, or another app (such as Google Drive). To do this, navigate to the Squid settings, tap Backup and restore, then Local backup, then Create backup and choose a location to save the backup file. Once a backup has been created, you can restore the backup by tapping Restore backup and choosing the backup file on your device. Please be aware that restoring a backup file will delete any existing notes you have (restoring Squid to the state when the backup was created).

Advanced Users

Squid stores data as outlined in this article. Advanced users can backup their notes either by making a backup of the application + data or by making a copy of the Squid data files (root users only).

Using 'adb backup'

Starting with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), you can backup applications and their data using the adb backup command. To do this you must have the adb tool (Android Debug Bridge) included with the Android SDK. You can backup Squid with the command

adb backup -f <backupFilename> -apk

and restore Squid with the command

adb restore <backupFilename>

For more information, run adb help .

Manually backup Squid data (root users only)

If you have root access on your device, you can make a copy of the files listed in this article, based on the version of Squid you are running. Restoring these files after re-installing Squid should restore all your notes (although this is not guaranteed). Note that if you overwrite an existing database file with a backup, any notes stored in the database being replaced will be lost.
