I'm using the zootool.com webapplication to store information about my favourite blog posts in an easily searchable way.

I am worried that should there be a corruption of their database, I would lose all data.

Is there a way I could export the contents in the form of e.g. an XML file (I mean the list of stored web pages and applied tags) that I could download and backup myself?

You can export your zoo via Settings > Sync > Download bookmark file. Exported files should be compatible with Safari, Firefox, Delicious and more.

Maybe I am clueless, but I stared at the Settings dialog without seeing a Sync option. Actually, it is at the top of the dialog (dark toolbar over dark background, text is dimmed out; stupid design choice) and the icon is the green round one... – PhiLho Jan 11 '13 at 12:07
Yes, the Download bookmark file button is located on the Sync tab inside the window that appears after you click on the Settings menu item. – Dušan Rychnovský Jan 11 '13 at 16:21
It was a useful information none less, it pushed me in the right direction! Too bad we don't have enough reputation, yet, to create a zootool tag... And too bad we cannot make it as a way to ask a moderator to validate it. – PhiLho Jan 14 '13 at 9:23
