Export database

A number of options are available for exporting or backing up your data from Ninox
In general, you don't need to worry about your data. When you use Ninox Cloud, Ninox periodically creates automatic backups of your data, and you can restore them whenever you need them.
In addition, however, you may want to download or export your data for a couple of other reasons.
