AKAIK, no single BIOS flash utilty works on all BIOS' generically. What is your chipset? We can search for a suitable flash utility.

The same tool that flashes a BIOS (usually) has an option to backup the current BIOS.

Or, you could visit ... REDACTED. Scam. Phoenix website contains a link to crapware. Go figure.

I tracked it down this far.

When I attempt to get the R60 files, it takes me to another model. This could be because the different models share the same firmware/drivers, but it could also be a bad link.

The tools are there, but I STRONGLY SUGGEST that you call 1-800-SAMSUNG for assistance.

Is your question about the BIOS itself, or about custom changes you have made?

Did you check your motherboard manufacturer's web site? They'll have tools to flash the BIOS to a new version, and usually one to make a backup copy of the version you have.

But, that may just back up the BIOS code, useful if your going to update the BIOS and want to keep your current version as backup. Settings are another issue. I just keep organized notes of any changes I have made to the default BIOS settings. I just flashed my BIOS to a new version yesterday and had to redo the changes I had made from the default values.
