If you want to make sure that you have a local backup of all your assets, we suggest using Cloudinary’s automatic backup option.
By default, assets are backed up to Cloudinary's buckets but you can also use your own S3 / Google Storage bucket instead of Cloudinary’s ones. This option is available for all paid plans and requires that Cloudinary is given permission to edit the bucket, instructions for which can be found in our documentation. Notice that Cloudinary's assets are stored in a very specific folder structure, using internal naming conventions.
- Only original assets are stored in the backup while all transformed media will be stored in Cloudinary.
- When using your own backup storage, the backup location should not be touched or modified in any way.
- Backup assets added to your bucket by Cloudinary are named in a specific way in order to support our backup and restore features. It's important that this structure is not modified in any way, or it may not be possible to restore from the backup or back up new versions of assets when they're overwritten
You can refer to the documentation here to set up your own backup storage.
