Last week, I had the displeasure of dealing with a crashed hard drive. If you've ever encountered this, you know how disruptive and alarming it can be. You start to mentally review all the important information that is lost, and how much we're digitally connected in our daily tasks. Thankfully, I've been doing frequent backups: what a relief.
You can easily back up your data from Sage ACT!. Simply go to File -> Backup -> Database… Whether you backup to an alternative drive, or to the cloud, make sure you include the Sage ACT! backup files as part of your backup plan. Hard drive failure rates generally increase the longer you use a drive. Don't be a victim to lost data, back up.
