How do I backup my data files?
MotelMax backups your data files automatically prior to the close of each shift. Or, you can backup your data anytime. From the main menu, select: Utilities | Site Setup | Utilities | Backup Data Files.
Data files are backed up to a sub-folder called ..\save by default. For example, if MotelMax is installed in the default installation folder (C:\Maxwin), the backup zip file is created in the folder: C:\Maxwin\Save.
You can choose to send a copy of this backup file to any other destination, including a removable hard drive. Go to: Utilities | Site Setup | Preferences | Extras | Backup Folder to define an alternate backup location. The alternate backup location must include a folder name, for example: F:\backup.
The user guide contains a detailed description of how to organize your backups and how to recover data in the event you have a hard drive crash.
