ACT Premium for web 2008 (ver 10.0.0.174). Administrative issues

I am new to ACT. I have been reccently granted administrative rights and I need to back up ACT yet I dont believe that the version of ACT I have allows for backups. There isn't a 'File' field for which to access the backup option. I only have the following menu options: 

 

 

 

My security role is Administrator but our ACT is housed on an outside server (I am currently attempting to put it on an inhouse server but i was told to back up the database first).

 

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

 

Thanks

You can't backup an ACT! for the WEB database from a remote, the must be done at the server hosting the database.

Thank you. That explains it all. Now I just have to get the former tech guy that is hosting our ACT database on his servers to make a backup copy before he deletes ACT completely. Wish me luck.
