Backing up your data

Make sure that all users are logged out of Fincon Accounting. Running a backup kicks all connected users off, which could be dangerous if a user is busy with something important.


  1. Navigate to File / Create Backup.
  2. Enter the complete file name (including the path on the server) in the Backup File text box.
    The backup file is made on the server computer so the path you enter here is relative to the server computer. For example, if you enter C:\FinconBackups\ThisIsMyBackup, the backup is going to be made on the server computer in the FinconBackups folder (on the C drive) and is going to be called ThisIsMyBackup.
  3. Click the Accept button.
  4. Wait for the backup to be created.
  5. Check that the following message appears: The backup file was created successfully.
  6. Click the OK button.
