65) DATA BACK UP

IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU BACK UP YOUR DATA AT LEAST 2 TO 3 TIMES A WEEK.

In order to BACK UP your data, go to the Start button on the bottom of the computer screen.  Go to Programs, then find the Retail Advantage on the list of programs.  You will see the option: SSM DATA – BACK UP, select this option.  Select the Back Up Data button.  You must select the drive that you want to back up the data, then for Sub Directory enter a name for the back up data file.  Then Click the Back Up Now button.

If you are using 3 floppy disks to back up, be sure that you have at least 4 or 5 disks.  If you would like to back up to a Zip Disk (you will only need one), make sure you have a Zip drive in your computer, or purchase an external Zip drive which will plug into your one of computer’s USB ports.

Please note that when using floppy disks you should have several sets of disks.  You also will need to delete or erase the contents of the disks if you are going to reuse them for additional backup sessions.  For instance, when you use floppy disks the disks will generally be full when you finish the backup process.   You can not backup data over existing data, so if you going to use the same set again you need to erase the contents or use a new set of disks.  That is why it is critical you have several sets of disks you can rotate.

Although the probability of your data being lost or damaged on your computer is very low, if it does happen you will realize the importance of timely and accurate backups.   PERFORM BACKUPS REGULARLY AND ON MORE THAN ONE SET OF BACKUP MEDIA.
