Using TurboCASH


This option will restore your data for a specific set of books or your hard drive or in a valid folder on your system. This option uses the Pkzip to uncompress or unzip the size of files contained in the backup file. To Restore a Set of Books from a Backup, a valid Backup (tcBackup.exe) file must exist.

It may however, happen that your data may for some reason become corrupt. Using the restore facility allows you to restore your data from a previous backup and will correct the possible errors. You may have to re-enter your data since the last backup until your last transaction before it became corrupted. It is recommended that you keep record of which data is backed up and which is not, as to prevent re-entering data that is already on your backup disks. The amount of data to be re-entered depends on the frequency and quantity of your data that is entered, since your last backup.

The very same backup disks or backup files on your hard drive are used to restore your data in your set of books. If you do not make regular backups, you may have to re-enter thousands of transactions and general ledger, debtor, creditor and stock information. It is also important to keep record of your backup disks or files or to label your backup disks to prevent restoring a Set of Books from an incorrect backup disk or file.
