Backup Catalog To Folder

Top  Previous  Next

 

Every file that is important for the catalog database will be included in the back up. It is recommended that you backup to a second hard drive. This could be an external hard drive or a second internal hard drive. It is not recommended that you backup to a second partition of the same hard drive. That is because when the hard drive fails, then your backup will be lost as well.

First select the drive/folder where you want to store your catalog backup. You can do this by clicking the folder icon to the right of the Backup Folder field. To prevent your backup from being lost on a hard drive failure, it is recommended to backup your catalog information to a folder that is stored on a different physical hard drive than the drive where you store your operational catalog. A different hard drive here means a different physical hard drive, dont backup to a second partition of the same hard drive either. If you have an external hard drive then that would make a good backup drive; so does a second physical internal hard drive.

 

Select the folder and click <OK> to start the backup.
