Backup

Backup Settings tab can be activate it by clicking on Backup Tab. InventoryPlus has a flexible back-up mechanism where in you can take a backup of the data from virtually any storage medium into any other medium. The more commonly used media are hard disk drive, zip drive, tap drive, etc. In the backup screen, the source of the backup and the destination of where it has to be stored has to be given, InventoryPlus will do as required.

Depending on the volume of data entry, an appropriate backup mechanism will have to be devised. One method to achieve the same will be by maintaining a backup directory in the local hard disk or the server (external storage media such as the floppy disk, zip diskette can also be used). We can have sub-directories for every day of the week under the main backup directory and regularly take data backups in the following manner depending on the day of the week.

Monday – C:\CAPBackup\Monday

Tuesday - C:\CAPBackup\Tuesday

Wednesday- C:\CAPBackup\Wednesday and so on till Saturday.

Note: In the example, we have given the I drive path- this does NOT mean that the Value backup facility is limited to the Hard Disk drive alone. The above procedure ensures that there exists a reliable data backup at any given time. In order to use that reliable data backup or bring back the data from that existing data backup we have to use the "Restore" option.
