  • If backing up to removable media, place blank formatted media in the appropriate drive.

  • If using an alternate location, enter the path or browse to the alternate location and enter a file name.

  • (Pro) Select the check box if you want to include inventory item pictures in the backup. Doing so may substantially increase backup time or file size.

  • Point of Sale only backs up your Point of Sale data. Therefore, it should serve as only one component of a comprehensive data protection strategy. You must take separate action to back up other important information for your business (QuickBooks financial software records, payroll records, other applications, etc.).

  • You should also consider a cloud based backup! Call us @ 888-255-9878 for more information and recommendations.
