I have created the flow on particular Site-Collection and after that successfully run on Microsoft flow.

Is it possible to export/import flows in order to have a backup option?

There was no such functionality to import/export flows or any other backup option previously.

But you can configure Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies as shown here for prevention.

UPDATE

As per @SP Combatant's answer now you can import and export the flows:

Export a Flow:

  1. click on ellipsis "..." menu, select 'Export' then click on 'Package (.zip)'
  2. provide a name and a description for your package and configure other options
  3. click on the "Export" button in the bottom right corner your package should start downloading shortly after (or click "Download" button)

Import a Flow:

  • click on the import button in the top right hand corner of the screen upload the package file and wait for the screen to show up the package details

    This answer is incorrect. You absolutely can import and export Flow's. – SP Combatant Feb 9 '18 at 17:46

  • @SPCombatant your answer is based on latest development in MS Flow.. the existing answer may be right at that timeframe.. – Arun Vinoth Feb 9 '18 at 19:08
  • @ArunVinoth, your are accurate, but if you are like me and came here looking for an answer, that answer is no longer correct, hence the comment and the correct answer below. No disrespect intended. Just wanted to keep this thread up to date. Thanks – SP Combatant Feb 9 '18 at 22:21
