How to create backup and copy files in jenkins?

I'm running jenkins on a virtual machine and I want it to be backed up, just in case the vm crashes.

How do I do that?

Hey @Anisha, all you need to do is to periodically back up your JENKINS_HOME directory. This contains all of your build jobs configurations, your slave node configurations, and your build history. To create a back-up of your Jenkins setup, just copy this directory. You can also copy a job directory to clone or replicate a job or rename the directory.
