Back Up Your FileCenter Data

Backing up your FileCenter cabinets is fairly easy. Each cabinet is simply a folder somewhere on your computer (or the network). If you know where the folders are, just mark them for backup in your backup program or copy them to an external drive or CD/DVD.

To find your folders, click the "Cabinets" button. This will open the cabinet management dialog. Look at each cabinet in the list and note its "Cabinet Location". This is the folder that holds the cabinet data and the folder that you'll want to back up.

You may also want to back up your FileCenter settings. Your settings are also stored in a folder. To find your settings folder, go to the drop-arrow under the FileCenter "Help" button > "Support Options" (or just "Support"). Then click "Browse Settings". This will open your settings folder. Back up this entire folder.
