SE Recommended Local Backup Instructions

Insert USB drive in computer and determine which drive letter has been assigned to that device.

Note: Local database backups can only be performed on the Host\Main PC.

To determine which Drive letter has been assigned to the USB drive open My Computer from the Start menu and look for the Removable Disk (Flash Drive, USB Drive, etc.), it will have a drive letter after it. In the example below the USB drive (Removable Disk) is drive E:



Open your Management Software. Click on (1) "Configuration", click (2) "Special Maintenance", then click (3) "Database Backup":



Place a Check in the option next to (4) "At Program Exit" and set the (5) "Backup Location" to E: (or the drive letter your computer assigned to the Flash Drive.



You system will now automatically prompt you to backup your critical files when the program is exited.

Tip: For even better data protection, we recommend rotating Flash Drives. Use one drive for Odd days and another for Even days.

How do you restore database from the file created?
Comment by Mitchell1 Support on Wed, Sep 23rd, 2015 at 7:37 AM
Joel, We recommend only restoring a database on your own if you‘re an advanced user, and not using Quickbooks Integration. A Database Restore application can be found in the program directory. Simply run it and point to your backup file. Please note, the database currently in the application is irrevocably lost, so always check with support if you‘re unsure.

Is there any plan to implement an auto timed backup instead of just when entering or exiting Mitchell? We had a computer crash at the end of a work day and lost all the records created that day.

We offer the option of an off-site backup that is kept current throughout the day. Please contact Technical Support for more information.
