Save Copy of Database in Z:

Hello,
 
I want to save a copy of an ACT! 10.0 version 2008 database in Z:, but when I tray t do it the program displays this sentence: The specified location for your new database is invalid. A database must be created on a drive on your machine.
Does anybody know if it is posible to save the database directly in Z, without saving it first in my machine?
 
Thanks!

Hi Luciana,

The drive that you save the database to must be local to the machine you are saving on. If the Z drive is a mapped network drive, you will not be able to save the database to that drive.

Back it up from your machine - File | Backup
Take the Zip file to the server
Open ACT! and - File | Restore
Select - Restore As
