SE Recommended Local Backup Instructions

Insert a USB drive into the computer and determine which drive letter has been assigned to that device.

Note: Local database backups can only be performed on the Host\Main PC.

To determine which Drive letter has been assigned to the USB drive open My Computer from the Start menu and look for the Removable Disk (Flash Drive, USB Drive, etc.), it will have a drive letter after it. In the example below, the USB drive (Removable Disk) is drive E:

Open your Management Software. Click on (1) “Configuration”, click (2) “Special Maintenance”, then click (3) “Database Backup”:

Place a Check in the option next to (4) “At Program Exit” and set the (5) “Backup Location” to E: (or the drive letter your computer assigned to the Flash Drive.)

You system will now automatically prompt you to backup your critical files when the program is exited.

Tip: For even better data protection, we recommend rotating Flash Drives. Use one drive for Odd days and another for Even days.
