Re: .bak file during backup

There are always .bak files created during backup in the supplemental files backup folder. These are then moved to a zip file

Re: ACT!2008 Premium Bcakup Error - Access Denied

You MUST NOT backup to the backup folder in the act database files folder.

 

ACT! uses this to create the temp files when doing backups. So, if you backup to that folder, it will get included in the future backups and the backup size will grow huge

 

You should make sure anything in that folder is deleted.

 

If you want to backup to another machine, you'll need to modify the ACT! Scheduler service in services.msc so that it's logging on with an account that has access to the remote machine
