FRITZ!Box 7330 Service

Saving the settings and restoring them to the same FRITZ!Box

You can save the settings of your FRITZ!Box to a backup file; if you need to, you can then use this backup to either import all of the settings or only certain ones (for example wireless settings, FRITZ!Box users). In addition to manually creating a backup file as described here, you can also have the push service automatically save your settings for you. The "Save Settings" push service always sends you an email with a newly created backup file before each update and before the factory settings are loaded.

This guide shows you how to restore your settings to the same FRITZ!Box. You can also transfer your settings to another FRITZ!Box.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.

  1. Click "Home Network" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Storage (NAS)" in the "Home Network" menu.
  3. If the option "Storage (NAS) enabled" is enabled, click "Internal memory" so that the contents of FRITZ!NAS are displayed.
  4. Mark the folders and files you want to back up and click "Download".

2 Saving settings

3 Restoring settings

  3. Click on the "Restore" tab.
  4. Enable the option "From this FRITZ!Box or another FRITZ!Box of the same model" if you want to restore all of the settings.

    Note:You can only restore all of the settings if the same or older FRITZ!OS version was used to create the backup file.

    • or, if you only want to restore certain settings:
      • Enable the option "From a different FRITZ!Box model".
  5. Enter the password you entered when saving the file.
  6. Click "Choose File" and select the file "FRITZ.Box[...].export" with the settings you want to restore.

4 Registering DECT devices

If DECT devices did not automatically connect to the FRITZ!Box after importing the settings, register them with the FRITZ!Box again. To keep all of the settings, use the FRITZ!Box's button to register them and not the wizard in the FRITZ!Box user interface.

  1. Register cordless telephones, DECT repeaters, and FRITZ!DECT sockets with the FRITZ!Box again.
