How to BACKUP your database:

  3. Click on BACKUP button
  4. Select your target drive:
    1. If you are backing up to a ZIP Drive, USB Drive, Floppy Drive, Memory Stick or any other removable media OTHER THAN CD-ROM then select the Drive Letter of that Device
    2. If you are backing up to a CD-ROM Drive then you will need to backup to your LOCAL DISK C: so that the file can be created then use your CD-ROM  Burning software to burn the backup file from the Local Disk C to the CD-ROM
  5. Select the type of backup
    1. User Databases ONLY – will backup just the database files (Contacts, emails, addresses, phones, notes, etc…)
    2. All User files – will backup all the database files plus any word processing documents in the Library folder and any custom Flyers, labels, envelopes.
      This is the best option but takes longer and requires more storage.
