To backup of the CAFD files from your car, as soon as you start reading the CAFD files from your car, E-Sys automatically stores the files into "C:\ESysData\CAF". All you need to do is to copy these files and store them somewhere safe. It's best is to make a new copy, and keep all previous ones, every time you want to code, this way you always have a copy of the last working version.

User April1 created this nice batch file to do just that:

It will take all the files in C:\ESysData\CAF and move them to a Time & Date Stamped Folder based on the Batch Execution run time.

Also, you should read this document:
