Alfresco Community edition backup and restore in Windows 10
We have installed Alfresco Community v5.2.0 using Windows .EXE installer in our Windows 10 system for our files and documents purpose. Everything is working fine.
It will be great help if you someone please let us know how we can take backup and restore in Windows 10 so that if any anything goes wrong in future so that we can restore our all data along with all user’s credentials and rules that we had setup currently.
Any suggestion would be highly appreciated. Thanks,

Restore production data
Thedir.rootdirectory is defined in thealfresco-global.propertiesfile. By default, this directory is namedalf_dataand located within the directory where Content Services is installed.
Restore the backup into the new repository.
If Solr is being used, put the following directories from your backup to thedir.rootdirectory on a new instance.
Some of the above mentioned directories are optional. This is because if the indexes are not copied over from the previous installation, Solr will query Content Services and rebuild its index in background after start up. It may take more time to rebuild indexes on large repositories. Applications will be accessible during the reindex process.
Point the new deployment to the old database using thedb.*properties in thealfresco-global.propertiesfile by providing the JDBC URL, database name, log in credentials, and any other relevant configuration options.
Remember to specify the relevant JDBC driver into your application server’s classpath.
