FRITZ!Fon C5 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 in the same FRITZ!Box.
Always backup your settings right after changing them and after updating FRITZ!OS so that you can always restore the last configuration that worked well.

1 Saving settings

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Save Settings" or "Backup" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Save" tab.
  4. Enter a password.
  5. Click the "Save" button and save the file "FRITZ.Box[...].export" on your computer.

2 Restoring settings

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Backup" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Restore" tab.
  4. If available, enable the option "From this FRITZ!Box or another FRITZ!Box of the same model" if you want to restore all of the settings, or enable "From a different FRITZ!Box model" if you only want to restore certain settings.
  5. Enter the password you entered when saving the file.
  6. Click "Browse" or "Choose File" and select the file "FRITZ.Box[...].export" with the settings you want to restore.
  7. If you only want to restore certain settings, enable the option "Manually select the settings to be restored" or "restore selected settings".
  8. Click the "Restore" button.
  9. If you want, enable the settings you would like to restore.
  10. Click "Apply".

The settings are now restored. Afterwards, you may then have to re-register all cordless telephones, DECT repeaters, and smart home devices, for example FRITZ!DECT 200 or radiator controls, with the FRITZ!Box.

Note:All of the settings for your cordless telephones remain intact if you use their menus to register them and not the "Manage Telephony Devices" wizard in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
