Thank you for reading this question. I am new to ACT!, but technically capable (e.g. SQL, C#, etc.)
I have a password on my SageACT! database, which I assume is encrypted by SQLServer. Is that correct?
What about my documents (e.g. the Documents tab on the Contact screen). They are accessible to anyone because they are just stored on the hard drive in a folder. How should I secure them?
I am running Sage ACT! Premium 2011 Version 188.8.131.52, Hot Fix 4, Windows 7.

Your documents are only as secure as your system as they are stored in a folder under the database files folder.
To secure correctly you would need to make sure no external source can get to the folder

Thank you. I assumed that, if a password were required, then the database would be encrypted.
To protect the data from prying eyes, would it be best to put the entire database, including attachments folder, in an encrypted container? If so, how would that best be done? Could I just back up the Database and Personal Files, then delete the original data, then restore them to a location in the encrypted container? If so, how do I specify the destination container to be the default location?
