Webflow automatically creates backups. If you're on the free Starter plan, you can restore any of the last 2 backups. If you're hosting the site with Webflow or have a premium account plan, you have unlimited backups.

In this lesson:
  1. Save a backup
  2. Preview and restore backup versions

Save a backup

Restore points are created automatically on every 20th auto-save and when restoring to a previous version.

Important: Before you manually create a backup restore point, make sure you see the green checkmark near the top right of the Designer to confirm the changes you want to be part of the backup are saved.

To manually create a backup restore point in the Designer:

  1. Click Command + Shift + S (on Mac) or Control + Shift + S (on Windows)
  2. Add a Description (to help you identify this backup version in your backups list)
  3. Save and close 

Preview and restore backup versions

You can access your project backups from the Project settings > Backups. Here, you can preview any backup to make sure you're restoring the right version.

Just in case, Webflow saves the current version of your project when you restore to a previous version.

Important: Images and other assets are saved and restored with a backup.
