This article describes how to create a backup in Sage50.
Before starting with the pre-conversion checklist., create a new backup.
In case you are doing a backup before clean up - we advise you to give this backup the name PRE_CONVERSION.001.
In case you are doing a backup to upload to dataswitcher - we advise you to give this backup the name DS_CONVERSION.001.
To create a new backup in Sage50 follow these steps:
- Open Sage50 and login to your company
- Go to the File menu in the top left
- Click Back up
- Follow the steps outlined in the dialogs, make sure to select all options
The only thing you have to check in this backup, is the "Data files". The rest will make the file bigger than needed.
