This tutorial will teach you how to manually backup your act database.
All act software users should know how to manually backup their act database to ensure that you never lose your data. In this tutorial I will show you how to backup your act database whenever you feel the need. I recommend always backing up your data before making major changes to your data or database and if you travel with a laptop computer that could be lost or stolen.
When you backup act creates a zip file. This zip file can easily be transferred to an external hard drive or even emailed. I am a big fan of Carbonite and strongly urge you to consider using the very inexpensive online backup service.
In my next tutorial, I will teach you how to schedule an act backup so that it occurs automatically.
