Backup a project

FactoryTalk Optix Studio
automatically creates backups of projects.
Projects are automatically backed up:
  • When you save a project
  • When you update a project to make the project compatible with a more recent version of
    FactoryTalk Optix Studio
  • Every time you update a project to repair a corrupted project. See Restore a project.
The default location for the backup folder is:
%localappdata%\Rockwell Automation\FactoryTalk Optix\Studio\Backups\
