How do I back up a peer to peer system?

03-22-2017


If you are hosting ShopWorks OnSite from your machine or you are setup with a Peer to Peer network, meaning that you are bypassing the Server software and just hosting the files, then backing up the system is pretty simple.  First, make sure that everyone is out of the ShopWorks OnSite software.  Second, navigate to the folder where the OnSite files are located.  Third, copy the folder that contains the files.  This can be done through a backup program, but make sure that users are logging out before the backup is set to run.  YOU CANNOT copy the files if they are open and if the files are open when the backup begins, you risk damaging the files.
