The app creates a useful copy of your blogâs content that can be viewed on any computer, burned to a CD, or hosted as an archive of static HTML files.
Sorry, thereâs no Windows version yet.
The output is minimally styled in a plain theme to ensure complete backups, zero external requirements, and a consistent data structure. Custom theme code is included in the backup as a separate file.
To view the backup in a browser, open the index.html file.

The following are not backed up:
Audio files from reblogged posts
You can launch the app every few days and re-run the backup in the same place, and it effectively performs an incremental media backup: image and audio files are only re-downloaded if they donât already exist in the target folder. Text content and post data are re-downloaded in full every time.
If you have private posts, be careful if you make the backup publicly available. Private posts are included in a private folder, and their images or audio files are included in the standard images and audio folders.
Are you a programmer? Each postâs XML data, as specified by our API, is embedded inside an easily-parsed-out HTML comment in each postâs HTML file, in case you want to do anything cool with it.
