A window will pop up that will allow you to select the project you want to back-up. Create a name for that backup folder. At the bottom where it says select location, make sure you save it to a place where you will be able to find it later such as a USB or your desktop. A backup is now created and that file can be uploaded to your FBN ® account in the My Files section.

You can store as many files as you'd like! FBN ® members receive unlimited data storage as part of their membership. When you store input invoices or precision data (planting, application or harvest) files in your FBN account, we get to work turning them into  valuable insights for your farm .  Once you upload a file to your FBN account, you'll also be able to access it wherever you are in the world. Simply log in to your account, click on the "My Data" tab and then click on the file. The file will automatically download. Here are just a few other examples of types of information that members store in their FBN account: Historical/Current Precision Data Grain Sales/Contracts Scouting Notes Crop Consultant Reports Seed Tags Chemical/Seed Invoices RUP Licenses Livestock Invoices Feed Tags If you have multiple years of precision data still sitting on your monitor or you're like many farmers and think it's time to digitize your file cabinet, we can help.

We use three checks to ensure that the analyses and data you see in  FBN ® are accurate:  Farmers First ®  - Our members have a strong interest in ensuring that their own data is reported correctly so they can take advantage of the full range of insights that FBN offers. Farmers can edit yields or report events (like crop damage) in FBN in a matter of minutes in our post calibration and manual data reporting tools, and can verify changes they submit through scale tickets. Data Operations  -  FBN  has a dedicated data operations team that manages data processing and cleaning. In addition to their checks on every raw file that comes into the network, FBN also deploys machine learning algorithms that throw out erroneous data points and results that appear abnormal based on the results we’ve observed in similar geographies and growing conditions. Statistical Power  - In statistics, the “law of large numbers” is a concept that describes why a dataset grows in accuracy as it grows in size. With a dataset of tens of millions of acre-events that continues to grow every day, the FBN network is the most statistically valid way for a farmer to understand how a range of factors like planting population, growing conditions, hybrid selection and others correlate with yield. We know that some monitors will over-report yield and some will under-report yield. FBN analytics run on large, aggregated datasets where these errors tend to cancel themselves out, leading to less noise in the data. As a matter of principle, the FBN platform is transparent about how many acres of data comprise the yield averages in Seed Finder , and we also provide 95% confidence intervals for the key metrics in Seed Finder , Analyze My Operation  and FBN Intelligence . Improving farm data collection practices and quality benefits all farmers. We are proud to be helping growers build a more data driven, connected and independent future.  Learn more by hearing from Matt Meisner, FBN' s Head of Data Science

1. Turn off all types of recording and stop the vehicle. 2. Insert the USB flash drive. Note: The display’s internal memory has 256 MB of capacity for field data. A “USB Detected”   message will appear if the display recognizes the USB memory device. If the message does not appear, read and accept the troubleshooting tips and try the other USB port (if equipped) or a different USB memory device.  Note: The USB must be formatted to FAT or FAT32. 3.

1. Turn off all types of recording and stop the vehicle. 2. Insert the USB flash drive. (You should have at least 1GB of free memory) 3. The "Data Transfer" page will appear within about 10 seconds. Note: If the USB flash drive isn’t recognized, try the other USB port, reformat the USB flash drive (FAT or FAT32), or try a different USB flash drive. 4. Select the "Export Data" option.  5. Select or create a "profile name" where the data will be stored on the USB.  Note: If you export to an existing profile, it will overwrite all setup information and data in that profile except for the documentation files used by the desktop software.  It takes less time when you export repeatedly to the same profile because the documentation files (for example, as-applied and yield map files) that are already in the profile on the USB aren’t exported again.  Note: Don’t use of the following characters (\ / : * ? " < >) when creating a profile name. These will cause the profile to fail to load to a display or Apex. 6. Select "Begin Transfer". a. Export Data from "Gen3 2630" Note:  Large data sets may take several minutes to transfer. Power loss or removing the USB during data transfer may cause data loss. 7.
