RFM: Backing up the data files

(208 Views)

It is important to back up your RFM data files regularly. The data files contain all the information you've entered. You can use the backup if your data files ever become lost or damaged.

You can set up the program to prompt you to backup every day, every week, every month, or never. You can also perform backups manually.

Note: For additional safety, you should save at least one copy on disk at an off-site location.

To back up when prompted:
  1. After closing the RFM software, click the Yes button to back up the data files.
  2. Browse to the location where you want to save the backup folder. If you want to save multiple backup folders, you may want to create a directory dedicated for backups (e.g., "RFMBackups") and create a new folder within that directory for each backup (e.g., 1-24-03).
  3. Click the OK button (Windows) or the Choose button (Macintosh).​

Note: If a backup exists in the location you selected in this step, the program will prompt you whether you want to overwrite the old file.

  1. Click the OK button when the backup process completes.

To back up manually:
  1. From the File menu, select Backup.
  2. Browse to the location where you want to save the backup folder. If you want to save multiple backup folders, you may want to create a directory dedicated for backups (e.g., "RFMBackups") and create a new folder within that directory for each backup (e.g., 1-24-03).
  3. Click the OK button (Windows) or the Choose button (Macintosh).

Note: If a backup exists in the location you selected in this step, the program will prompt you whether you want to overwrite the old file.

  1. Click the OK button when the backup process completes.
