Backing Up Your Data

It is recommended that you backup your CRE database file every day. The best way to backup your data is to back it up onto a 3.5" floppy diskette. However, you may also backup your data file to a remote directory in the root drive (C:\).

To backup your data onto a 3.5" floppy diskette in DOS:
1. Go to the DOS prompt (C:\>)
2. Type CD\CRE2000\DATA2000 and press <ENTER>. This will take you to the DATA2000
subdirectory. This is where your database file is located. It is called CRE2000.mdb.
3. Insert a 3.5" floppy diskette in the floppy drive.
4. Type COPY CRE2000.MDB A: (or B: depending on the floppy drive) and press <ENTER>.
Wait for the message "1 file copied".

To backup your data onto a 3.5" floppy diskette in Windows:
1. Click on the Start menu and select Run.
2. Type C:\CRE2000\DATA2000 and press <ENTER>.
3. Insert a 3.5" floppy diskette into the floppy drive, then click on the Start menu and select Run.
4. Type A:\ (or B:\ depending on the floppy drive).
5. Click on the icon named CRE2000 (this is your database file) in the data window and drag it
into the floppy diskette window. The same icon and file will appear in the floppy disk window.
At some point, your database file might become too large to fit onto a 3.5" floppy diskette. You can use WINZIP, a file compression utility that shrinks or "zips" files so that they can fit onto a diskette. It is a shareware utility that can be downloaded from the Internet. You can download WINZIP from the downloads.com.

To backup you're data onto a remote directory using DOS:
1. Go to the DOS prompt and make sure you are in the root directory (C:\).
2. Make a new directory to which you can copy your database file on the C: drive. We
recommend calling this new directory CREBAK. To make this new directory, type MD
CREBAK, then press <ENTER>.
3. Type CD\CRE2000\DATA2000, then press <ENTER>. This will take you to the DATA2000
subdirectory where your database file is located.
4. Type COPY CRE2000.MDB C:\CREBAK, then press <ENTER>. Wait for the message "1 file
copied".

To backup you're data onto a remote directory using Windows:
1. Create a new directory on the C: drive called CREBAK. To do this, click on the Start menu
and select Run. Type C:\. Right-click on the open window and select New then Folder from
the menu. Type CREBAK, then press <ENTER>.
2. Next, open the window containing the CRE database file. Click on the Start menu and select
Run. Type C:\CRE2000\DATA2000.
3. Open the CREBAK directory that you just created.
4. Click on the file called CRE2000 in the DATA2000 directory (this is your CRE database file)
and drag it into the CREBAK window. The same icon and file will appear in the new directory.
