1.  Please replace the attached backup batch file ( backupdata.bat, backupdata.sh depends on your OS) and place it under  SupportCenter/bin directory.
2. Open a command prompt in admin mode.
3.  navigate into  SupportCenter/bin  -> Execute -    backUpData.bat --trimmed   ( For Windows )
This will  ignore archive, index folder for trimmed backup.

Open a command prompt in admin mode and goto  SupportCenter/bin :
Execute ->   backUpData.sh --trimmed ( For Linux )

 Note : After downloading  '  backUpData.txt  '  change it to  ' backUpData.bat '

Note - 
  1. You can copy the inlineimages , fileAttachments , images present under SupportCenter folder separately. These folders combined is equal to full back up of the database.

  2. Once the backup is complete, a backup file with .data extension is placed in the Backup folder under the Supportcenter Plus\trimmedbackup directory


If you are using SQL database, just take the .bak file (SQL Backup) and restore it in a test SQL environment.
