For bim server, we had a script from Graphisoft, which allowed us to stop the server, backup the bim server and projects to a network folder which then was backuped every night and then restarted the server.
I've been searching the Graphisoft website to find a similar tool for bim cloud basic, but all I found was the backup information for the full version.
Is there/does anyone have a script which allows me to back up the bim cloud basic server?

Hi everyone,

I'm happy to announce that we have updated our Backup Guides for both BIMcloud and BIMcloud Basic.

They are available here:

Kind regards,

Hi Noémi,

Thanks for the updated guide.
1 question, the links in the pdf to the scripts don't work.
Can you check the BIMcloud_Basic_22_Backup_Guide.pdf

Kind Regards,

Hi everybody,

first of all sorry for digging up this Topic from 2018, but there might be a thing to stumble upon for future readers using BIMCloud on Windows.

This Page:
has now "BIMcloud" and "BIMcloud Basic" Backup Guide from version 2020.2
The PDF for BIMcloud Basic on Page 5 offers links to zip files with the backup scripts for Mac and PC.
The link to PC leads to: ...

The zip file contains 3 bat files
  • v24PcServerAndManagerBkUp.bat
  • v24StopServerService.bat
  • v24StopManagerService.bat
v24PcServerAndManagerBkUp.bat states Line 13
Code: Select all
REM Editing the script below this line is not necessary!
but calls v22 Manager and Server to stop

See Line 45-47
Code: Select all
REM Stopping Server and Manager
call v22StopServerService.bat
call v22StopManagerService.bat
Should be Line 45-47
Code: Select all
REM Stopping Server and Manager
call v24StopServerService.bat
call v24StopManagerService.bat
In case the v22 stop files exist someone could stop v22 and cause inconveniences.

Cheers S.

Thank you for the feedback. I will fix these as soon as possible, so even those will benefit who are not reading this forum.

For catching this glitch, I can offer you a virtual high five. : )

Kind regards,
