You can backup the Overseer database by using the Backup and Restore Wizard.
This is useful for sending copies of your database to support for troubleshooting purposes,
and is also a good idea for regular backup purposes. It's also useful when moving Overseer
to another computer. You can access the Backup and Restore Wizard by going
to Tools->Backup and Restore Wizard
- Once you start the wizard, click Next to get started
- To backup your data, choose 'Backup Database To:' and then select a directory
by clicking the '...' button and browsing to the directory the file should be
created. Click Next when ready.
- Wait while the backup completes. Based on the size of your database, this can
take up to a few minutes.
- Overseer will backup it's database to the directory you picked up,
naming the file Overseer_, followed by the date and time. The date is in
an international year_month_day__time format for easy sortability. You can copy this file
to any medium for safe keeping. You can restore at any point, using the same wizard.
