    Backup / restore

    I finally have my Zee working perfectly. I only have two light switches and a Yale lock, but it took me several tries to get everything working. My question is, now that it works, can I backup the Zee and perhaps more importantly can I restore it? Of course I could test this, but I don't want to break it after a full day of getting it to work. Here's my idea:
    Backup
    1. Take the SD card out of the Zee and back it up using Win32 Disk Imager
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/
    2. Backup the configuration from the Zee's setup - general tab
    Restore
    1. Log on to the Zee web page - plugins - zwave - controller management then select erase this interface.
    2. Restore the SD card using Win32 Disk Imager
    3. Restore the configuration file

    I seems like it should work, but I thought the z-wave network addresses may now be out of sync and it would not work.

    I have a related follow-on, since I've had at least one "issue" restoring from the Backup Config files... Are scripts saved as part of this backup? (Mine are nowhere to be found after doing a Restore Config onto a freshly imaged SD).

    Edit: Luckily, I was able to find the necessary scripts on a previous image I'd saved - but it would still be nice to know if the script directory is actually saved as part of the one-click Backup function. (If not, I feel a bug report coming on, because mismatched scripts could easily make a Backup useless or severely degraded).

      I keep a backup of the HS3 directory. Sometimes on the Zee or whatever I have copied it to.

      For wintel have a look at WinSCP.

        I, too, keep a backup of the HS folder on the zee as well as an image.

          Note that WinSCP provides a Wintel Explorer view to you Zee.

          That said it is a powerful tool when you give it root access; such that you have to be careful using it.

          It does provide you with a 10,000 foot view and is a bit different than a command line view of the Zee using SSH. Its really more related to what you are most comfortable with using.
