We use TeamCity on our servers to run unit test, performance tests and deployments. By now we rely heavily on the processes which we configured in TeamCity. In case we lose a server, we would like to have backup of all the configuration of TeamCity on that server.

To create daily backups we use TeamCitys REST API. There is an endpoint for Data Backup. I found a script written by Ivan Leonenko, which encapsulates the API call in a powershell script. If you want to then create a repeated Task Scheduler task, here is a step-by-step blog post on how to do that. Since we do all our backups with SyncBack, I created a repeated runner there which executes the powershell script. After that JungleDisk takes care of copying the backups to Amazon S3, where we would find our backup copy in case the server and its data is lost.
