Backup Your Database

It is so important to have a Backup of your database. At least half a dozen times per year we are call in to assist a client and find they do not have a backup or if they do they are:

  • Not current often months old.
  • No restore has ever been tested to see if they actually work.

Our recommendations:

  • Besides the automatic backups using ACT! Scheduler do a manual backup once per week to a different machine.
  • Check the restore function at least once every 6 months to make sure they are valid.
  • Check the Backup logs at least weekly to make sure the automatic backups are actually working.
