SQR provides it's users the ability to backup their portfolios, data providers and other news, web and media subscriptions. We highly recommend our users to backup their data frequently as a measure of precaution. The backup archives can then be later restored, if need be, to get you back to the state where you were when the backup was taken.
Backup archives are also an easy way to share your portfolios, data providers etc... with the SQR user community. Similarly, they can also be used to transfer your data to a secondary machine.
