Backup up your data

It’s easy to take a backup of your company data and it’s a good idea to do this on a regular basis for each company.  How often you do this depends on the amount of data you enter and how often you access you Sage.

Backing up does not take long but if you have a large amount of data this can take a little longer.

To create a backup

  1. Open the required company, click File, then click Back up.
  2. Note the suggested file name or edit the name as required, please note the file name must end in .001.
  3. Click Browse, choose a location to save the file to, click OK.
  4. If you want to back up other files such as reports and layouts, select them from the list or choose Select all file types to include in backup.

We recommend that you back up data every day, you can backup other files and we have included below a list of each file type and when you should back it up.
