I think the easiest way is to backup your data via export data to CSV File..

To export data, you should change the view to List view >> tick the box >> click more >> export

Don't forget to allow user to import / export data in settings

Yes, actually you could just import the field that is needed in your system. Just mark all the field that you don't used as "Don't Import"
