Data Backup

In this section, you will find all the available methods to backup your instance data.

Using an External Data disk

Version badge


  • This method will not work with Android 5.1 (Lollipop) and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
  • If the Open Gapps have been installed on the original instance, they must be installed on the target instance too before attaching the external drive.
  • The target instance must have the same Android version as the original instance.

You can export and import your data partition using the External Data disk feature. See External Data Disk for detailed instructions.

Using an image copy


This method will create an exact copy of the original instance (template), including the version of Genymotion emulator.

You can also create a backup image of your instance disk. To do so, you can follow the same process as creating pre-configured images.
