Customisation settings backup

Do I have to back up my revised settings since they were last done in 2015?

On the assumption that you have changed some settings and added some customisations over the intervening two years, then that is a good idea.

The current Backup and Restore Family Historian Settings Plugin does have an option to Restore from Backups taken with an earlier Version of FH, and offers not to overwrite customisations with the same Name but a later Date.

However, it would be wise to take a Backup snapshot of whatever settings you have now.
You never know when your PC or HDD will crash and require everything to be re-installed from scratch.
So both Project and Settings backups on external media must be a daily/weekly regime, which can be mostly automated.
