Select the Name of the Set of Books you wish to
The name for the Backup file will be displayed by default as
tcBackup. Overtype this file name with any other file name.
The date and time of your operating system is automatically inserted in the file name (e.g. tcBackup200503011544) after the default tcBackup file name. (In this example, the date and time format is YYYYMMDD followed by the Hour and Minutes. – The format may differ if your operating system's short date style or format is set different.)
It is recommended that this date and time not be overtyped, if you enter a name for your backup file.
If you need to create a backup file onto your system,
make sure that the Backup to E-mail option is not selected. If you need to send the backup file via e-mail, select the
field. For Internet and E-mail security purposes and firewall settings,
you need to remove the tick in the field.
TurboCASH will then create the backup file in the .zip file format.
Select the Drive to Backup to. The
default backup path (drive or folder) for a set of books as set in the Setup - Preferences - Backup Path menu
option will be displayed. If you have not set the default backup path, the
default system drive (normally this would be the Stiffy Drive A) will be
displayed. If you wish to select any other available drive or folder on your
system, you may click on the Folder icon on the
right-hand side of the Backup To field. The Browse
for Folder screen will be displayed on which
you may select any other backup target folder on your hard drive.
Remember to insert a Stiffy Disk if you have selected your
Stiffy drive as the Backup target. Click on Backup and the process will start.
If the Stiffy is full, TurboCASH will prompt you to insert the next disk until
the backup process is completed. TurboCASH also allows you to backup to a
Re-Writable CD, provided that you have a CD writer installed and formatted disks
on your system.
Click on the button to start the backup process.
While the Backup process is running, the files that backed up
from and added on your backup disk or location on your hard drive or network
drive will be displayed. When the backup process is completed, the following
Information screen will be displayed:
Click on the button and click on the button on the Backup Set of Books screen. You may also press the button on your keyboard
