To backup your tasks use this task example, please:
[DEMO] Backup your tasks (daily backup).tsk

Save the text of the task to a file and use menu Task->Import to import the task into RoboTask.
Do not forget to enable the task after importing.

This task make the incremental backup of your tasks into backup folder.
It crates separate folder for each day (the name based on date).

Of course you can change Backup folder and amount of the days as you wish. Look at the steps #1 and #3

The same task now included into installation package of RoboTask.

Also you can find more examples here: http://robotask.com/samples/

Hi Oleg, where are the settings of the tasks saved? I would like to backup all of my tasks but also if the task is enabled or disabled. Thank you.

RoboTask saves all task parameters (for example Enabled/Disabled option) in the task file.
In other words the task file contains complete information about the task.

If I export a task and then import it to another computer, the task always appears as disabled, this means some settings are not saved when exporting?

When you import the task or paste the task from clipboard RoboTask disables the task forcibly. It is necessary for safety.
A task can be started immediately if it contains any triggers. In most cases, you need to change something in the task or look at the structure of the task before turning it on.
So you have to enable imported task manually.
