No, the function is not provided in tomtom home or i would not have asked. helpful information is appreciated.
Are you trying to "backup" mapshare data?

I've found it sits in a number of files, and I'm not 100% sure which file keeps what data, so I backup all of them.

root folder
- userpatch.dat

map folder (usa_canada_mexico_p for a 340)
- mapsettings.cfg
- mapserverpatch.dat
- mapuserpatch.dat
- deletedpoi.local
- any files ending with a .ov2 extension

Be careful, mapsettings.cfg is often cached in memory and not read/written to the Tomtom drive. A resync of the cache and file occurs when you add/rename in Operate my XL in home. So I recommend doing the add/rename just before you backup the files. And if you have to restore the files, do an add/rename immediately after a restore.
