Hi @Safir Gol Aria 👋

Welcome to the Community!

1. I'm not sure I quite understand the first question but I know at present there should be no effects to using Trello. 

2. The best backup option is the Power Up 'Backups for Trello' - It allows you to protect your boards for $1/board/month with a minimum charge of $5/month. The backup covers:

  • Boards
  • Lists
  • Cards
  • Checklists
  • Custom Fields
  • Labels
  • Attachments

3. Trello's option of backing up is very manual and can have some dependency on the subscription tier your Workspace is on. Basically, Any board member can export a Trello board's contents at any time by going to the board menu, and then clicking on More, followed by Print and Export. The board's data will be exported to a JSON file.

1 - trello backup export options

Export to JSON file is available for all Trello users. However, export to a more accessible CSV file is limited only to Trello Premium. 

4. I would recommend using Backups for Trello as it'll make returning content straight forwards for you and your team. The Power Up runs daily automated backups and protects you against innocent mistakes, buggy Power-Ups, and attacks. Swiftly restore your entire board back to a time when everything worked perfectly.

I hope this helps but if you have any other questions just ask away 😃

All the best,
