Altium Concord Pro auto backup

Altium Concord Pro can hold a broad range of valuable data, including defined users, roles, LDAP Sync tasks, design data (including projects, components, models, templates), and configuration information for the PLS service. A key requirement of ensuring the long-term integrity of this data is backing it up. The standard Altium Concord Pro installation includes a backup and restore tool, accessed via a command prompt.

The default location of the backup tool is in the folder \Program Files (x86)\Altium\Altium Concord Pro\Tools\BackupTool\. The name of the backup tool is avbackup.exe.

Important note:

  • Restoring a backup is only possible to the same version of server from which that backup was made
  • You must run the Command Prompt in administrator mode to be able to use the Backup and Restore tool.
