How do I prepare my database for archiving a backup to Flash Drive or CD?

In order to prepare your existing database to archive to a remote location such as a flash drive or CD, follow this guide. You will first clear all pending items from your database, and then create a new backup file.

1. Clear all pending transfers

In order to clear all pending transfers, do the following:

  1. Open The Paper Tiger
  2. Click on the "Confirm" button

  3. Either confirm or cancel all the pending transfers


2. Create new backup file


  1. Go to File > Database Backup Manager
  2. Make sure you select "Create New Backup File" for the type of backup

  3. Click on the "Backup Database" button

  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 one more time. This will create 2 new backup files as seen here:

  5. Now select the second row in the backup file entry and click the "Archive Backup File" button

  6. Choose a place to save your backup file such as a flash drive or CD. Then you're ready to restore the backup when you need to.
