Backing up projects can help you easily access all your Explain Everything projects (in the native .explain file format) while changing or restoring a system or a device, and whenever you feel you’d like your projects to be extra safe and protect yourself from losing them.
Back up your Explain Everything projects
All projects created in the iOS and iPadOS version of Explain Everything can be backed up to the iCloud Drive. This way, you’ll be able to recover them once you restore your device or set up a new one.
- Go to your Apple account settings.
- Select the iCloud tab.
- Use the toggle to enable Explain Everything.
- Go to the iCloud Backup tab.
- Use the toggle to enable the iCloud Backup option.
Note: The iCloud Backup option saves the current status of all your projects in their entirety, and won’t let you recover individual projects stored in the iCloud Drive. If you’d like to have access to projects you save locally on your device from any device when online, copy your projects to Explain Drive or save your projects on the Explain Drive.
Note: Remember that the automatic backup takes place in the night and it requires power connection as well as a Wi-Fi network.
All projects created in the Android version of Explain Everything can be automatically backed up to Google Drive. This will let you reach them from any device when online. To make sure that any project you save locally is saved in Google Drive too, enable this option in the app Settings.
- Go to More Menu.
- Select Settings.
- Head to the General tab.
- Under the AUTO-BACKUP category, use the toggle to enable the Google Drive option.

All projects created in the web version of Explain Everything are cloud ones and therefore they’re kept in the Explain Drive cloud. They’re saved in there automatically while you’re working on them so you don’t need to worry you’ll lose them.
