back up NVIVO data

Recommended Posts


I am new to NVIVO and want to make sure I can back-up my data regularly.

I don't seem to be able to do this.

i understand I go to file: create copy ..... however the only option is create copy of sample project.

Could you let me know how I back-up a new project.

Hi Penny,


The projects created in NVivo are stored locally on the computer in the ‘Documents’ folder b default unless specified otherwise. NVivo for Windows projects have .nvp extension and NVivo Mac projects have .nvpx extension. To be able to take a back-up of the project regularly, you will need to copy and paste the .nvp or .nvpx file to a new location. Please see the link below for more information:
