Backup Copy Protection

Database Backups

The simplest protection of the database contents is done by creating backup copies of the complete database file, thus the whole contents of the database. You can later, if the situation requires it, restore the database from the backup, i.e. put the database in the same state as it was when the backup copy was created.

The backup is created by copying the database file wb8.fil to a backup medium. It can be useful to compress the backup copy as well. When restoring the database, you simply replace the damaged database file with the backup file.

Backup can be created manually, from a database application or automatically (based on the periodic automatic backup settings). You can find more information about creating backup copies of the database file here.

User has to have access privileges to the folder containing the database file in order to create a backup.
