Is this a workable backup solution?

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.

Hi @Roger Cavanagh just to confirm this is a duplicate question but with a different title. 



Apologies, the browser hiccoughed the first time I tried to post and I thought it had not gone through. Can this be deleted?

No problem at all @Roger Cavanagh I just wanted to add that comment in case people didn't notice it was posted twice. No need to delete, when individuals read the comment they will know to refer to you other post to respond. Thanks!

Hey @Roger Cavanagh! To protect your organization from data loss in Trello (typically caused by human error) you can use the Backups for Trello Power-Up, available in the Power-Up marketplace. 

In the case of a data disaster, you'd be able to use Backups for Trello to swiftly restore your boards back to the way they were when everything worked perfectly.

With the Power-Up, you won't need to use CSV or JSON exports at all. Everything is automatic including backups and the restore process.
