How can i take backup of my form instances for all my forms.
You can export all of your instance data to a text file by following the instructions in our help guide: http://www.perfectforms.com/Documentation/manual/html/?d_exportingformsandformdata.htm.
Keep in mind it will export in our schema. If you want it in your schema you should use the Connection Agent to programmatically write to a database of your choosing when the instances are submitted.
Workflow software, Process software, Procedure software
After you export the text file and the attachments for the instances, is there a way to import them back into PF?
You haven’t deleted the instances, you have simply exported the data. The instances remain. ┬áThere are a couple of different ways to create new instances and populate them from data in an outside source. You could use the API:┬ http://www.perfectforms.com/Documentation/manual/html/?add.htm. Or you could use a connection from the Connection Agent to populate a new instance:┬ http://www.perfectforms.com/Documentation/manual/html/?d_databaseconnections.htm
