How do I make a working backup of my ExACT data?

On the server computer:

1. Verify the correct ExACT database folder: on the ExACT login screen, ensure the name specified on Login is DATA.
2. Make sure that every workstation is completely switched off. In your exact32 folder (c:\exact32) there is a DATA folder.

Follow these steps to make a 'working backup':

1. Copy the DATA file in the exact32 folder to an external disc and rename it to DATA_current on the external disc.
2. Within your exact32 folder, rename DATA to DATA-copy.
3. Copy the DATA_current file from the external disc back into your exact32 folder. Once copied to the exact32 folder, rename the DATA_current file to DATA.
4. Log into ExACT and check if the last process you did is on ExACT. If it is, the copied DATA_Current file on your external disc is a 'working backup'.

A practice needs to make a 'working backup' at the end of each day.
