Advisory: This site contains documentation for the v1.12 release candidate version of Docker Engine. For the Docker Engine v1.11 docs, see https://docs.docker.com/v1.11/. Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows are currently in Beta.
Usage: docker export [OPTIONS] CONTAINER Export a container's filesystem as a tar archive Options: --help Print usage -o, --output string Write to a file, instead of STDOUT
docker export command does not export the contents of volumes associated
with the container. If a volume is mounted on top of an existing directory in
docker export will export the contents of the underlying
directory, not the contents of the volume.
Refer to Backup, restore, or migrate data volumes in the user guide for examples on exporting data in a volume.
$ docker export red_panda > latest.tar
