[Solved] Shut Down After Backup

Hello Jeff,

I have been adding a lot of entries and backing up the data periodically before I completed my session. It's annoying to have the program shut down after each backup. Is there a way to do a backup without shutting down?

Regards, Al Borodayko

Hi Al,

Sorry about that. Because of how the backup occurs and does a replace/compress/repair on the database, you must close BD Desktop and reopen it to use it after a backup. No ways around this.

I usually have trouble convincing users to do a backup once a month. I didn't know that I had some users that backup multiple times per data entry!!! That's a new one on me. LOL 🙂 

Sorry Al.
