Apparently a co-worker accidentally overwrote a static resource zip file. I do weekly backups. Is it possible to retrieve past static resources from a zip file?

  • Is the weekly back from the Data Export function or are you backing up metadata explicitly? – David Reed Nov 8 '19 at 18:23
  • I have weekly data export backups. The good news is that I was able to get the missing static resource from the partial sandbox I made earlier in the week. What should I do to have backups of the static resources. I want to have backups of them if possible. – Michele Kleinhomer Nov 8 '19 at 18:27

The Weekly/Monthly Data Export function does not back up metadata configuration files. For metadata, you should be using a source code repository (e.g. Git). This allows you to recover changes to your fields, objects, classes, static resources, and anything else you want to back up configuration-wise. You can even use SFDX to make it easier to migrate changes between orgs.
