Making backups


Recommended Posts

Hello again!

I am enjoying 3D-TrainStudio very much!

Now, I have a bit complex desing, I was looking how to do a very important task I was not able to find...

How to do a backup?

I don't want to loose anything!

Can I do individual desings backup, whole data base backup, both?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello aemartinez,

Choose menu Save project as ..

  • do not enter a name 
  • do not enter a category
  • do not publish to te internet

as shown in the image


then press the Export button

  • enter a filename in the explorer window
  • Backups.jpg
  • save it as *.mbp file to any directory you want. The file is now saved on your harddisc.
  • cancel the save as .. dialog

You can retrieve this fle in the start window of 3D Train Studio:

  • select My Projects to Import existing project
  • Backup3.jpg

All events should be included.

Hope it helps,

Hi aemartinez,

Henry's solution is the right choice when you want to backup individual layouts. To backup all layouts, you can copy the full database storage folder to a backup location. The path to the database folder can be found in the settings dialog.

Kind regards,
