Whilst a fan of online apps and data, the paranoid in me wonders what I would do if your website goes down or gets compromised. Is there an easy way to backup my bases for local storage?

Hey all, as Airtable/Zapier experts (not directly associated with Airtable or Zapier) we built a way to do external backups for Airtable automatically, to address this issue directly.

If backups are a priority for you, check out the show and tell here: How to set up automatic external backups for Airtable in 20 minutes

I’m curious about the same. We’re in the middle of building a large-ish business system where AirTable is at the center of all of the connected cloud services. While I’ve never wondered about the reliability or security of Airtable in the past, I’m starting to wonder now that the data stored in Airtable is connected to almost all aspects of our business.

We are in a similar position. We are 3/4 of the way of having our own Airtable empire and our business operations rely on it immensely. Local backup would be awesome.

I’d really like to be able to make 1 backup of all the data in my whole Airtable account at one time. Thank you!

This would help ease everyone’s worry. I am creating data points that are not recorded elsewhere and with all the changes in tech companies coming and going I would hate to lose the information. This product is so good that the only risk is that Google might buy you out someday since they have nothing like this, but if that happened I am sure they would find a way to save customers data.

I use Airtable for lyrics and chords on stage with a band, and if wifi goes down during a show we’re in trouble. I’m very looking forward to being able to save a copy of everything to my device before a show and operate offline.

Agreed. I wouldn’t want Airtable to become a single point of failure for my enterprise, so this feature (full external backup) is mandatory. Maybe not the attachments, if those had a local origin, anyway.

I am working on a database for investigation and preparation of a criminal defense case. Will share when complete.
