Backup current database
\KDB Backups is a standard folder created under the "CatTools" folder at installation. To backup your database files to the
\KDB Backups sub folder:
- Go to File > CatTools database.
- Select Backup current database.
- A dialog will prompt you to generate an encryption password for the database backup. Create a password and click OK.
It is critical to remember the password you create. Without the password, your data will be lost and cannot be retrieved.
.kdb files are not over-written or appended. Each new save creates a new file, and the file name is incremented using a numeric progression for example "Backup-1", "Backup-2", "Backup-3", and so on.
Up to nine backup events are created. Each time a backup is done, Backup 1 moves to Backup 2, and Backup 2 moves to Backup 3, and the series continues. The oldest backup event - Backup 9 - is dropped and deleted.
