Use this item to backup Tracker databases to your hard drive or to other media, such as a Zip disc or USB flash
1. Select the database to back up.
2. Use the “Select Path” button to identify the path to the backup location.
3. Click “OK” to start backup.
This selection was designed for use in an emergency situation, such as
a hard drive crash. If you have backed up a database to media other
than your hard drive, you can use the restore function to return the
backed up database to your new hard drive.
Notice: Before restoring a backed-up database, create a new, blank database using the Database Manager.
Then restore the backed-up database to the newly created database. This will eliminate any opportunity to
overwrite or lose data in an existing database.
Warning: Restoring a backed-up database over an existing database overwrites the existing database
and may result in a loss of data. If you have questions about restoring a backed-up database, contact JTECH
1. Highlight the database to restore the backed-up data to (see Important Tip).
2. Click the “Select Path” button to locate the backed-up database.
3. Click “OK” to restore the backed-up database.
When turned on, this feature automatically creates a backup file of all currently active databases in
the database folder under Auto Backup/Tracker Auto Backup #########.t5d. The # symbols stand
for a number assigned to the backup file. The assigned numbers increase with each backup, so
highest number is the most recent backup. Automatically backed-up files can be saved to alternate media for
safe keeping. They can also be reopened using the “Restore” command in the system database drop-down
