To Backup Your Data

Agency Advantage users should perform backups of their data on a regular basis. We recommend that our customers backup daily and rotate the backup media. This prevents corrupt media from causing a total loss of data. At a minimum, users should backup the aadata.mdb file located in the AA folder.

If your agency is utilizing the document imaging feature in WinAA then we also suggest backing up your image storage path. This path can be found under System Setup > Agency Information > Default Image Storage Path from the Main Menu.

Caution! The image storage path can be very large depending on the volume of scanning in your agency. Please consult a computer technician about the proper backup media.

WinAA does not include an internal backup program, however, you do have a lot of backup options. It is very important that you backup your files. The first option you have is to use the backup utility that comes with your Windows operating system.

  • To start the Backup click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup.

  • If you do not see Backup on the System Tools menu, it is not installed.

  • To install Backup, click Start, point to Settings, point to Control Panel, double click on Add/Remove Programs, and then click the Windows Setup tab.

  • If you used a compact disc to install Windows, you will be prompted to insert it into your computer.
