Exporting SkySafari settings to another LiveSky account

Is it possible to export all the SkySafari settings (equipment, observing lists, sites etc...) from one LiveSky account to another LiveSky account ?

Thanks

    Jean-Claude,

    This is not something you can really do yourself.  However, we can probably make the changes on the server for you.  May I ask what you are trying to accomplish?

    Hi Bill,

    I know that it may seem to be against the stream, but I am reluctant to rely completely on a "cloud" storage of my data.

    An error on one device can jam everything on the other devices with no possibility of restoring.

    Because it's not possible to backup the data on a disk, I thought I could copy them to another account as a safety.

    We back up the database daily.  I doubt we will get in a situation where things can't get recovered.  We have not has any data loss in the year we have been using this.

    Bill, I was talking about a damage of my settings (equipment, observing lists etc..) caused by myself !

    How can I restore them ? Where are the backups accessible by the end-user ?

    Jean-Claude, I think this is as simple as login your LiveSky account.

    That's the way I understand it.

    I have 2 Android tablets, SNP8, LiveSky account and 1 Android emulator for SkySafari on my desktop and everything share the data the firts time I login my account.

    Bill can correct me or complete the answer.

    Hope it will help!

    Jean-Claude,

    You would have to ask us to do the restore.

     

    Gervais,

    Jean-Claude is concerned about himself accidentally deleting all his data (or dome other major screw-up).  I think he understands that LiveSky holds a copy of all his data.
