New User Question On Backups

Hello Mark...I am using your plugin and it works great. I have a question concerning backing up my devices in case my HS3 ZEE S2 Edition (Linux) hub has failed. What would be the best way to make sure if my hub failed for some reason or the data file supporting my devices and setup information was lost? Please be kind...I am still on my learning curve. Any help appreciated.

For my plugin you need to backup the config/Insteon.ini and homeseer.hsd files

I actually don't know how to download files from the Zee

There is a plugin blbackup you might check out.

I would check out the forum on the Zee and see what others are doing

When I do the normal HS3 backup of the config, does it also backup all the insteon stuff or do I need to do more?

do a quick test, but i don't think so. i think the hs3 backup routine only backs up hs3 files not plugin files.
