FRITZ!Box 7340 Service

Saving the settings and restoring them to the same FRITZ!Box

You can save the settings of your FRITZ!Box to a backup file; if you need to, you can then use this backup to either import all of the settings or only certain ones in the same FRITZ!Box.
Always backup your settings right after changing them and after updating FRITZ!OS so that you can always restore the last configuration that worked well.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Saving settings

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Backup" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Save" tab.
  4. Enter a password.
  5. Click the "Save" button and save the file "FRITZ.Box[...].export" on your computer.

2 Restoring settings

  1. Click "System" in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
  2. Click "Backup" in the "System" menu.
  3. Click on the "Restore" tab.
  4. Enable the option "From this FRITZ!Box or another FRITZ!Box of the same model" if you want to restore all of the settings.

    Note:You can only restore all of the settings if the same or older FRITZ!OS version was used to create the backup file.

    • or, if you only want to restore certain settings:
      • Enable the option "From a different FRITZ!Box model".
  5. Enter the password you entered when saving the file.
  6. Click "Choose File" and select the file "FRITZ.Box[...].export" with the settings you want to restore.
    • Now the FRITZ!Box shows you which settings can be restored.
  7. Enable the desired settings in the list.
  8. Click the "Restore" button.

The settings are now restored. Afterwards, you may then have to re-register all cordless telephones, DECT repeaters, and smart home devices, for example FRITZ!DECT 200 or radiator controls, with the FRITZ!Box.

Note:All of the settings for your cordless telephones remain intact if you use their menus to register them and not the "Manage Telephony Devices" wizard in the FRITZ!Box user interface.
