backup
Saves a backup of the current file to the backup folder.

PICO-8 will create a backup of your cartridge in {appdata}/pico-8/backup when you quit without saving or overwrite an existing file. You can also trigger a backup manually with the backup command.

Examples Edit

At the PICO-8 prompt, never having saved:

> backup
backed up

This creates a file in the backup folder named something like: 20201225_123987_untitled.p8

And if the cart is saved first:

> save winterwonderland.p8
saved winterwonderland.p8
> backup
backed up winterwonderland.p8

This creates a file in the backup folder named something like: 20201225_124203_winterwonderland.p8
