Step 2: Click the workspace name on the top left.
Step 3: Select Settings & administration, then choose Workspace settings from the menu.
Step 4: Click on Import/Export data. Next to Slack, select Import.
Step 5: Paste the link to the export file into the Direct download link field or click on Upload it directly and choose the zipped export file from the local machine.
Step 6: Click on Upload file.
Step 7: An email will be sent when the upload is completed.
As mentioned above, the native backup and restore tools offered by Slack have serious limitations when it comes to data recovery. Third-party cloud backup applications like SysCloud are better options to effortlessly back up and restore your Slack data.
With SysCloud backup for Slack, administrators can easily back up all critical Slack data and restore data from any point-in-time backup snapshots and restore deleted messages to a different channel. Admins also have the option to export all Slack data as .csv files and files in their original format.
