[SOLVED] Backup volumes outside Docker

Hi there !
I would like to know if there is a way to backup volumes outside Windows Docker.
Because the latests version of Windows Docker patch some issues but bring others, so I have to upgrade and downgrade the version, but I lose all the volumes in the process, so I’d like to save the volumes outside Docker.
Is it possible ?

Backup and restore of volumes is explained in the docs for volumes. The idea is that you mount your data volumes and a local folder into a container and create tar files with the content of the volumes.
