When using Unifi it would be nice to be able to force a backup, rather then wait for the autobackup.

I was having trouble with Unifi in that it was not backing up automatically.

Being able to force a backup would be benificial and speed up any migration of backups to another installation.

Just go to Settings-> Maintenance-> Backup and change the "Backup Data Retention" to "No Limit". Hit "Download" and then it will take a couple seconds to create a file to download for you. 

Not sure if you didn't see this already.

Thanks, I will have to try that.

I created this request after working with tech support on an issue and asking if there was an option to "force" an update. They said no and recommended I create a feature request.
