SandBox refresh question

HI,

 

I looked at the documentation of salesforce and I could not find the answer to my question:

 

I would like to refresh my development sandbox which already has numerous experimental applications that I have been developing and I was wondering if I refresh it whether these applications and custom developed module object will be lost and overwritten by the production instance?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

Yes if you do a sandbox refresh, all your existing sandbox information would be lost and your sandbox would be a copy of your producion environment after refresh.

 

You could do a backup of all your required experimental applications before you actually do a refresh.

 

Thanks.

Thank you. What is the best practice of performing a backup on your sandbox?

 

Thanks in advance.

I think you can create package and transfer it to your free developer instace.
