If I backup the database for act 2010 will it also backup my customization?

I'm about to reformat my computer and I've cutomized ACT quite a bit (including several custome email templates - which i can copy manually)

 

if I do a backup will the changes I've made to my fields be backed up as well?

 

Thanks!

Assuming you select the 'Include Attachments' option with the backup and your custom templates are saved to the default folders...

Yes, a backup of the database will be a complete copy of your database. This will include any fields you have added or templates you have created/modified.

If you'd like to test the backup process, after creating a backup (File > Backup > Database) - you can use the Restore function (File > Restore > Restore As) to restore to new database name. Be sure to select the 'Restore As' option to prevent overwriting your original database.

Thanks for the rply but it wouldn't let me test the backup process, using 'Restore As' because it said the verion I ahve will only let me use one db.
