Hi,

I checked already all items here in the community, but did not found appropriate solution: I make a backup of my configuration of my one-and-only router and immediately try to restore it, then I get this message:

"The selected backup file is not compatible with this device, please choose another file."

I do not want to workaround by USB-stick or SCP, and I do not like to do factory-reset since I'm not fully sure I get my backup-file restored/applied. So just I'd like this to work as expected ;-)
( Creating and restoring users-default-config works. )

Please help,
thx, Rainer

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us.

I assume you have tried to restore the device to the factory defaults and it did not work.

I would like you to attach a troubleshoot file. Access router's WebUI, go to System -> Administration > Troubleshoot section and download troubleshoot file from there.

Best regards,

Žygimantas

The development department is informed about your issue, however, no feedback has been provided yet. I will inform you once I get more details.

I'm a bit nervous - I'm not able to restore any backup :-|

Thx for help, Rainer

What is working (workaround) is doing a reset to factory settings/firmware, then backup is restorable.

You can also try to copy configuration files from the backup and move them to router using WinSCP as instructed in this page. The directory with the configuration is /etc/config
