This illustrates how you might be able to create your own backup system of KNIME workflows of KNIME workflow groups. Since they are 'just' folders you could ZIP them and add a timestamp and be done. Later you could decompress them and have your work back. Please note: you might have to refresh the explorer in order to get the data back. This workflow is meant to demonstrate the possibilities. It was developed on a MacOSX machine with local paths, if you use Windows or Linux please check your settings. To use this in production you might have to make some adaptions. and especially split backup and restore processes! If you backup your workflow in an executed state (the traffic lights are green) you will also have that data stored with it. This example assumes your workflow to be backed up is at the same path as the backup workflow. If this is not the case: please adapt.
