    Still don’t have this capability in My Accounts. Any idea when it might be fully rolled out?

  2. MuMuHu says:

    Not on my account, feature is nowhere to be found, what the heck ist this? Are only a few people allowed to backup their information?

  3. Mezanul says:

    This feature is still not available to all accounts, but Facebook will roll out this feature for all accounts soon.

    thanks for the post

  5. An alternative, but one that costs $6.99 one off, is to buy SocialSafe from http://www.socialsafe.net. This makes backing up your Facebook (and soon Twitter) just a one button press operation. It also provides a full search capability across all your data, easy export of photos and a full diary viewer so you can see what happened on any date or date range however far back you want to go – all almost instantly.

  6. I just backed-up Facebook using Facebook’s own back-up feature as you suggested, thanks.

    I want to try other tools as well, such as Backupify, any experience with that?

      I have been using Backupify since it was beta. It’s a very good backup solution.

      Why don’t you try their free account first to see if it suits you? :)

    beautiful haha =D

  8. The backup is nice, but it would be even nicer if there was an easy way to restore the data to facebook.

    How do I RESTORE my account from this backup?? What’s the point of a backup if you can’t use it??

  11. Thanks for this clear information, it was very useful !!!

  12. Faizan says:

    This FB back up is not so good as it seems. I just downloaded it and well, they backed up my wall only till November 6th. I was expecting a huge amount of files but what I got was only 84mb

  14. JohnnyCantTube says:

    Facebook utility did NOT work on all the new Browsers; the script stalls

    ONLY Google19 worked 100%

    result= disappointing,

    not really all the data is captured

    extended version is not much more than standard “Download your Information” process

    I waited 4? hours to get the reply email with the link; really?
    result was a very small zip file with all my stuff but only a few of the latest picts

    there *must* be a 3rd party util that does this better

    and

    ?Help Center? NOT

    OK the FaceBook has some merit but they should really have rolled out something
    with much better value, and perhaps ?incremental backup on a schedule

    Hello.

    I changed my personal Facebook page into an Artist FanPage without making a backup of all my information.
    I thought that I would get a ‘subscribe button’ and that everything would stay the same.
    Instead Facebook deleted all my information. My inbox is gone. My photo’s, my history…Everything.
    It’s feels like my extern harddisk crashed.

    I want my old Facebook page back. Or something to download my old information.
    Can you please help me?
    Thanks!
