5-minute setup

Connecting Backupmybooks to your Xero organisation could not be easier. Authorise with a few clicks and your backups will begin.

Online viewing

You can peek into the contents of any of your backups, maybe to check a balance at a past date, or to decide which backup you wish to restore.

Overnight scheduling

Your data backup runs everynight between 2:00 am and 6:00 am in your timezone - when we assume you won't be working.

Restore or copy

Restore any of your backups into a new Xero organisation if you need to recover your data or maybe want to try a new add-on with a copy of your data.

30-day history

 We retain a rolling 30 days of backups for you. If you wish to keep a specific backup for longer, you can "pin" it to save it*.

Download to Excel

Each overnight backup comes with an Excel version of your accounting data. You can download any of these files to keep a copy on your own computer.

* A “pinned” backup will only be available 6 months after which it will be automatically deleted.

Things you should know

Since we rely on Xero's API to backup and restore data, it's impossible for us to make an exact backup or restore. You will, however, have a complete and accurate representation of all of your key accounting information. Please refer to our limitations page for more details.
