Hey cmmourinho,

Please note that all PRTG licenses are perpetual, which means that PRTG will still work even after the maintenance has expired.

However, once the maintenance has expired, you're not able to update PRTG to the latest version anymore.

If you run a trial and the trial period of 30 days has ended, PRTG will also continue to work, but limited to 100 sensors active only.

Nevertheless, if you want to backup your entire configuration, please refer to this guide.

Best regards, Sven
