How to create a full backup?

Hi,

as mentioned on the title, how can I create a full backup of the car (E92) with NCS Expert?

I know how to backup each module but I would like to backup everything.

Tks

If you're concerned about losing your custom settings after a software update you will need to back up the individual trc files for each module you have coded. If you are just concerned about messing something up you can always go back and code your modules with expert mode to reset to default settings.

GreatLakes9729: Thanks, that did the trick.

nate5ks: Didnīt know that. I thought that I need full backup in case I mess with something (e.g. write the wrong MAN file to a specific module)

It is even not spossible to write wrong data to ECU through MAN file, NCS expert will not let you do it.
