You can back up your Field Manager Commercial data file to a hard drive, re-writable CD/DVD (CD-RW/DVD-RW) or removable drive. If the original data file becomes unusable for any reason, you can restore the backup to prevent losing the information.

Note: You can only access the backup feature if you’re logged into Windows on the computer that the Field Manager Commercial database server resides on.

To create a backup:

  1. If you’re backing up to a removable disk or hardware, insert it into your computer.
  2. Select Backup from the File menu. The Backup Data File dialogue box appears.
  3. To burn your backup file to a CD or DVD, select Backup your file to CD/DVD. Or select Choose the location where you would like the backup copy of the data file to be stored and continue to Step 4.
  4. Click Browse to select a location to back up your data file. Then click Save.
  5. To compress the size of the file, select the Zip the backup file? check box.
  6. Click OK. A message will inform you when the backup is complete.

Note: The program tracks the date of every backup. If you haven’t backed up your data file in more than seven days, a warning appears each time the software closes. To see the date of the last backup, selectAbout Field Manager Commercial from the Help menu and click the Database tab.
