|Company data in Uniconta is automatically backed up in the cloud. However, local backups can be performed concurrently on the user’s drive.|
How to perform a local backup
Use the navigation panel to open Tools/Additional Setup/Local backup.
Enter the “Field delimiter”. This is the character that separates data fields within the file that is saved as a local backup. A semicolon is recommended, since it is already included in amounts.
Click on the “Local backup” button in the toolbar/ribbon to begin the backup.
Choose the backup destination. Any destination that is linked to the user’s computer can be chosen: locally on the users PC (not recommended), server, external disk/USB, OneDrive, Dropbox etc.
Assign a file name to the backup. For example BackupUniconta”date”. This way the backups can be administered by date. Next time a local backup is performed, Uniconta will remember the previous backup settings used. If an external disk/USB is being used, we recommended that the user alternate between two or more separate disks/USBs in case an error occurs on any of them.
The backup is exported as a compressed Zip file consisting of a CSV formatted file for each table of the company’s data.
The backup contains all current accounting data. If the user has several sets of accounts in Uniconta, then a backup should be performed for each account. We recommend that the backups are saved in separate folders so that the files do not get mixed in with each other.
