Backup Blog Incrementally - Blogger Backup Utility Free

If your blog has too much post and blogger is long time to export or you are not able to export your blogger posts then here is the solution for that. Greg Duncan has created a free blogger backup software that's extremely easy-to-use and gives lot of control over the backup process

Blogger Backup is a small open-source Windows tool that, well, backups the posts and comments from a Blogger blog. The Blogger Backup utility is intended to be a simple utility to backup to local disk your Blogger posts. Click here to download page
In this tool you can also specify following details:

  • You want to back up all posts in to single file or one file per post.
  • Set of duration for which you want to back up the posts
  • Do you want to backup comments or not?
  • Limit on number of posts per file
  • Get all posts or get only selected number of recent posts

Once you have all these files on your computer, you could write a tool that imports them to a database or use Blogger's API to recreate the blog. In fact, this tool also uses Blogger's API to get the feeds. You can also use backup xml file to import posts using "Import Blog" at "Settings -> Basic".

Also Please check following shell script to back up your blog in to 100 posts per file:

# backup script for new blogger
for x in 1 101 201 301 401; do
curl -m 300 -s "$URL&start-index=$x" > $1-$x-atom
gzip $1-$x-atom
sleep 10

#If you have fewer than 500 posts at the moment... If you have more posts then just modify the line "for x in 1 101 201 301 401 501 601 701; do" and so on for more posts also you can increase the number of posts per page by changing this line "URL=http://blogname.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?max-results=100"
specify any number instead of 100
