Need To Move Main Database

Hi,

 

I am currently on Sage act premium 2012 and need to move the main database location from a laptop to my main pc which is new. The reason is the database doesn't sync with the RDB's when the laptop isn't here. 

 

I have read a couple of posts on moving the main db but they differed slightly on the method.

 

What i wanted to end up with was the main db being on this pc and the laptop to become an rdb like the rest.

 

Thanks

Hello johnmerrick,
Here is the KB article for instructions to move a database:

Since you are in a syncing environment, please see this article as well for instructions on how to retain sync when moving a database:
