Backup is useful when we lost our data or go to specifically in blogger blog topic then we can say that If you ever doing some tweaking to your template and something else goes wrong or system hangs then you should first restore the exported backup and then start over or you may lost your changed or probably your whole blog template.

I’ve also mentioned above the other two options in Blog Tools which are Import Blog and Delete Blog. Import Blog is used to restore the backup of the whole Blog and Delete Blog is used to delete the whole Blog. As you may know that if you want to Import Blog then make sure that You’ve already taken back up of one of your Blogger Blog via above technique or if you’re blogging in any other blogging platform then you might have to follow different steps to take back up of that blog. So for that, you should just Google it.

So, After taking the successful backup via the above technique, Keep it in safe place so that it will be only used by you because you’re the owner of your backup. Some persons prefer to store backup in Cloud Drives like Dropbox or Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive etc. You can store there too if you want to. I prefer to take backup of the Template and the whole Blog near every 15 – 20 days. If I’ve done some big changes to my Blog then I will take backup that day.
