How to backup (device/sensor/notification/map) only?



Hi Paessler,

If I only want to backup device/sensor/notification/map only (giveup logs and historical data). Which files or folders I need to copy out? (PRTG Configuration.dat ??)

If you only want to keep the configuration of the elements named (as well as the objects being monitored, which you would need in order to retain the data defined above), then yes, the configuration file would be the right file to back up. You will find more details as to where PRTG stores its data under How and where does PRTG store its data?
