HomeStar EZ InventoryHow do I?Backup the Data files

5.2. Backup the Data files

You can run a backup of the data files at anytime as long as there is no one using the program (if using the Network Edition). The program will create a zip file of all your data files and can be stored anywhere on your system, network drive, flash drive, etc. Our example saves it to the C:\ drive. To perform this operation just follow the steps below.

There are two ways to arrive at the Backup/Restore Utility.

First, run the program. Click File, Backup/Restore Data, then click Backup Data.

OR, click the Windows Start Button, All Programs, Star EZ Inventory, Utilities, Data Backup-Restore Utility.

This will run the Backup/Restore Utility.

You will find the field with the heading - Name and location of archive file.  You would then select the location of the backup file you want to create/save.

Click on the folder to the far right to select a location to store the backup files.

This will display the folder selection screen.

In our example, we save it to the C drive. After you select where you want the file to be saved to, click on the save button. You can also change the name of the zip file. If you do change it, be sure to include the suffix .zip at the end of the name.

This will take you back to the main screen of the backup utility.

When you get back to this screen, click on the Backup Button to perform the actual backup of the data files.

This completes the Data Backup Routine.
