Greetings,

I'm replacing an employee that had an extensive list of tests created for the project I'm working on. Unfortunately, when logging into the virtual machine which she was using and opening her test folders, a number of popups about missing code and files being read-only popped up. It seems she was unable to properly backup the files for the next user, me.

I was able to review some of her tests and decided that due to missing logins and URLs no longer being correct that it would be easier to rewrite the tests. I don't want to end up in the same boat as her in the future should someone else pick up the testing assignment or need to run the automated tools from the virtual server.

My question is "how do I properly backup the project files and restore them on another computer or for another user?"

Hi Robert,

I’m sorry to hear that you've run into issues with your tests. Test Studio has a built-in method for preserving projects for backward compatibility. Test Studio creates backups any time you upgrade the software to a newer version. The backups are stored in:

ProjectFolder/Backup
 
Beyond that, the best option for backing up your projects would be to take periodical backups using a method of your choosing and store them in a safe location.
