Backup Trello boards

Deleted user May 29, 2019

I've read a number of posts about backing up Trello boards. They often seem to involve more complexity (JSON, GitHub) than I want or am competent to get into.

Is it a reasonable course of action to copy a board, close but not delete it? I assume that nothing in a closed board gets included in searches or shown on the home page. If some corruption occurs then I can always re-open the closed board.

Are there any pitfalls to this method? If not, is there a way to automate it?

Nothing that we're ready to share beyond late summer 2020. It's too early to give an exact date.

Quick update from the Rewind Team:

The Backups for Trello Power-Up is live in the Power-Up marketplace.

Power-Up runs daily, automated backups of your Trello boards, lists, cards, and more. You can also run a backup any time if your team is making a lot of changes to a board or testing a new Power-Up.

Should you wish to restore a board back to a previous version, you can swiftly do that in the Rewind Vault.

With our product, you don't need to worry about exports and imports – everything is automated and you can recover data on-demand as you need.

If you have any questions, please comment here or send me an email at

@[deleted]  Copying and archiving/closing a board is a type of backup that would work for this use case.  However it is not a "real" backup independent of Trello.

Thanks, but someone access to our trello boards and delete all , how we will restore that?

in our case we are many working on same board, so we need one option to backup our board safely to be able to restore it in case.

Thanks for any suggestion.
