    There is no back-up functionality in Contribute in the way you describe at this
    moment.
    So you will have to use a FTP-program (Filezilla is free) to download the
    complete site from the server.
    What is possible in Contribute is to save previous versions (enable Rollbacks
    in the admin section) of the pages (saved as .bak).

    I manage the content on my newspaper's web site, but am not an expert user. I
    asked the web designer who built the site to update the links in the sidebar of
    the templates, and one of the pages was overwritten with an old file and I've
    lost 5 months of links to articles from our paper. Apparently there were two
    pages named Communities, but one had a lower case c and one had a capital C.
    Contribute allowed both to exist without warning about duplicate names, but
    when the developer downloaded the files to update the template, one file
    replaced the other. Grrrr! Is there any way to retrieve the lost page? It
    doesn't exist on my hard drive anywhere... I'm learning the value of backing up
    files.
