Pathwright is a web-based platform, so you won't need to download or update any software; we host everything in the cloud.
We have all Pathwright content backed up on Amazon's servers, which scale based on usage. Amazon uses more than one server to backup your school, and they store our data in several facilities and on multiple devices in each facility. By doing this, they provide 400 times the durability of a typical disk drive.
We run backups daily.
All that to say, your Pathwright content has multiple layers of backup. If you'd like to back up your own course content, you are able to make your own backups by copy/pasting your content and saving it outside of Pathwright. We do not keep past versions of your content, so if you wish to preserve multiple versions when editing, you'll need to create copies offline. We can provide you with an entire course duplication of a course that you plan to revise if you also want to keep an original copy.
To request a course copy, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide the name or URL of the course you want copied and let us know what you'd like the name of the new course to be.
