Backup and restore

Read-only projects can be backed up by any user, regardless of their privileges. However, the backup functionality does not archive the current security permissions. Consequently, if the project is restored on another machine, the security settings need to be reapplied.

Projects cannot be restored into an existing read-only project; attempting to do so will display an alert message advising that the project is read-only and cannot be restored.
