Shopify is a great platform, but itís not perfect. What happens if you delete something by accident? Or what if your store gets hacked and all of your data is lost?
Does Shopify have a backup of my store?
No, by default shopify doesn’t back up your store. Instead what shopify is doing is, they are backing up all the store’s data in a centralized server.
Shopify’s entire platform is backed up routinely. These backups are maintained on a regular basis.
The objective of a disaster recovery backup is to restore the whole Shopify platform in the case of a catastrophe at their primary data centers, such as a flood or an attack by hackers.
As a merchant, you need to understand that Shopify’s disaster recovery backup cannot be used to restore data in your individual store.
Remember- the backup contains the data of all merchants on the Shopify platform. And it is not set up in a way that allows them to pick and choose data.
Now we know that backing up data is important, but it can be time-consuming and confusing to do this manually.
What you need to backup and restore data from your individual Shopify store is an account-level backup. Thatís where the Backup and Restore App comes in.
