    This plugin is great, but we experience an issue with copying a course (try /backup/copy.php - this is a copy feature on the Course and category management page), when there is a dynamic custom field added. There is an error 'Failed to load course'. When we remove all dynamic custom field, copy works fine.

    Can you check and comment on the possible solution?
