Backup is a function in Manager which allows archiving of accounting data so it may be used to restore the original data after a data loss event. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after it is lost. The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from an earlier time.
Backups can also be used as a mechanism of transferring accounting data between two different computers or between different editions of the program.
As long as new accounting data is being recorded, backups will need to be performed at frequent intervals. The most common method of performing a backup in Manager is to use the
Backup button in the top-right corner when working with an accounting entity.
If multiple accounting entities need to be backed up, the process needs to be repeated for each accounting entity.
