      Description

      Please see this thread which outlines the conditions required for the system level and course category level question banks to be included in a course backup: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=377855.

      As automated course backups are only available for site administrators to use, give site administrators control over whether or not system and course category question banks are included in automated course backups. These settings should probably be accompanied with a warning regarding possible impact on quizzes. However, the choice to exclude the system question bank from automated backups could significantly improve the performance of the task and reduce the size of backups for an institution that heavily uses the system question bank.
