TrackSite : backup

A new backup activity (screen) has been introduced in Track Site. It allows :
  • a local backup where the backup file is stored on the SD card
  • a remote backup where the backup file is sent to an email account as an email attachment. It's not a cloud-based backup, but the idea is to use the mailing box as a secure place to keep the backup and a way to provide ubiquitous access to the backup when needed

The remote backup automatically makes a local backup then sends the backup file as an attachment.

Some instructions are given in the email :
keep the attachment file in a safe place as it may content private information

1) save it on the target phone SD card, at the root (not in a directory),
2) then in Track Site, use restore (Menu -> More -> Restore)
