ACT! Prem 2012 AND WinBackup Svr 2008 R2

[ Edited ]

Can I use the builtin Windows Backup in Server 208 R2 to successfully backup and/or restore ACT! Premium 2012? The ACT DB is installed on the server.

It would be unsupported from a restore point by Sage but if you stop the MS SQL (ACT7) service before your backup and start it again this would work.

Hello,

 

It would be better to use the ACT Scheduler to do the ACT backup to the server and let the internal Windows backup program capture that file.

Why doesn't the builtin MS VSS SQL writer kick in during the backup for the MS SQL instance ACT! creates?
