Re: backuping data

Goto settings>Cotrol Panel then open scheduled task. You can add scheduled task then scheduled task wizard will appear on screen then just follow the instruction carefully. Then look for application "Backup". Then fill-up correctly before clicking next button until it will finish.

See some good example maybe this is related to your backup option.

Hope this solution will make completing your day.

Best regards,

Data gone!

Providing you are in the correct file, the only way I can see to get the old data back is restore a backup from prior to the error.

I have purchased a new computer and want to install my rent-right. Please give me step by step instructions on what to do

To install RentRight and transfer you data onto a new computer?

Answer :
Follow this link to download and install RentRight v3 on your NEW computer:

If you are not using the Internet, you will need to order a CD with the full version of RentRight to install into your new computer.

Follow this link to download and Update to the latest version of RentRight v3 on your OLD computer:
DO NOT change the installation directory folder. When asked if you want to write over the existing folder, reply, YES. Respond to the prompts to complete the installation.

When done, open RentRight on your old computer, go to File on the menu bar and choose BACK UP to back up your data, and save it to your Desktop.


Insert a portable storage device, such as a blank CD or USB memory stick, into your computer.

We recommend that you do not us a 3 1/2 floppy disk, because it is not reliable, and may not have a

large enough storage capacity to hold your backup.

In RentRight, click on File from your Menu bar
Select Backup

Click the Backup button

The Back Up window will open:

Use the "Save In" drop-down menu to navigate to the desired location, such as your Desktop

Click on the Save button
Copy the backup that you just created,, from your saved location to the portable storage device you inserted into your computer.

Copy and Paste the Backup Database you just created, from your Desktop to a portable storage device,

such as a cd or flash drive.

Take the portable storage device containing your backup from your old computer to your new computer, and Copy and Paste the Backup Database from your portable storage device to your Desktop.

Open RentRight on your new computer, go to File, and RESTORE your data.

1. Locate your file

2. Right-Click on your

3. Select 'Extract All' from the drop-down menu

4. Follow the Extraction Wizard prompts. This will create a Folder with the name rrbackv3. In this folder will be a file called 'aptment.mdb'. You may not see the .mdb file extension if you do not have this preference set. This aptment.mdb file is your Backup Database, and is the one you want to restore in RentRight.

5. Start RentRight.
6. Select File from the Menu Bar.
7. Select Restore.
8. Cancel the "insert a disk into drive A" message, unless you are using a 3 1/2 inch floppy disk. If so, insert the disk.
9. Click on the drop-down arrow in the 'Files of type' field, and select 'All Files'

10. Click on the drop-down arrow in the 'Look in' field, navigate to the aptment.mdb you just extracted, and click on it.

11. Click the Restore button


You must backup your data to your desktop, and then copy that file from your desktop to your portable storage device, such as a disc or flash drive. The same applies for restoring from a portable storage device: you must copy that backup from your portable storage device to your desktop, and restore your data from the file copied on your desktop.

Now you need to move your license to the new computer.

You must first de-activate the license from the old computer. Go to Help/RentRight Sales on the old computer. Follow the prompts about moving from one computer to another. Next, choose the option to "Activate over the Phone". Contact us by phone at 800.964.8065 x2826, or email and provide us with the Entry Codes and Computer ID numbers for both the old and new computer. After deactivating the license on your old computer, we will give you a different activation code for the new computer.

WE have upgraded a sage program on to new computer. However we cannot restore the backup due to an "unsupported version "error

hi dmatharu667
this happens when you take a backup of a company that has a accdata folder in the accdata folder and it reports version as v9. To correct this go to data directory go into accdata directory and in that director move or delete the second accdata directory, repeat your backup and it should then restore perfectly

I want to transfer all sate data from my old laptop to my new PC, I have already installed the hardware on the new PC

Sage has an EXPORT function that you can use to transfer data.

You could also copy the daily files from the storage folder to a USB drive

O the new machine use the IMPORT function to import a backup of the files or use the folder options to get data from the USB drive to set up a new company profile which would use your old data to set up a new copy of SAGE with your exisying information.

The prefered option is IMPORT / EXPORT

Symantec Backup Exec 11d compression

Unfortunately, the data types you described are already compressed.
Your hardware and software cannot compress it any further. In fact, compressing compressed files actually increases the file sizes. Don't worry, Backup Exec knows better than to compress compressed files so you can leave your settings in place.

The compressed capacity of a tape drive is a marketing ploy by the tape backup industry to make them more appealing. Yes, if your backup consisted entirely of uncompressed files you might get close to 75GB but never 80GB. You can only count on getting the uncompressed capacity of a tape.

Three options:
Obviously, a higher capacity tape drive will resolve this problem.
You could also swtich to using two tapes but you would have to load the second tape when you arrive for work in the morning and your backup would have to finish during the business day.
Finally, if you have some data that does not change frequently you could seperate it from your active data. Backup the active data on your regular backup. Now you can backup the "archived" data manually with a separate backup job. Once backed up you only have to back it up again when new data is added to the archive.

I hope this helps.

Palm OS-based PDA freezes up

If you’re not sure what file or application is causing the problem, you’ll need to perform a hard reset. Before you do this, be sure to perform a HotSync so your data is properly backed up (the hard reset will erase all data on the PDA). To perform a hard reset, press the power button while performing a soft reset. Replace the power button when you see the Palm/PalmOne logo and press the Up button when prompted.

Next, find your Backup folder on the desktop. You’ll usually find this folder located within your user folder, which is usually located in either C:\Program Files\Palm, C:\Program Files\palmOne, or C:\Program Files\Handspring. Your personal folder will resemble the user name you selected for your device. If you used your first and last name, for instance, your user folder will likely be the first six letters of your first name followed by the first letter of your last name. Rename the Backup file to Backup.old and HotSync your Palm to restore personal data. Because you renamed your Backup folder, no applications or additional files will be restored at this point. Instead, an empty new Backup folder will appear. Move applications from your Backup.old folder into the new Backup folder one at a time and HotSync your Palm. After each HotSync, try to reproduce the problem. If the problem doesn’t reappear, move on to the next file. Delete any files that cause a problem after they are moved onto your PDA.

Enjoy! Pls.rate me if it's done. Thanks.

Kindly regards,

Restoring files from the database

I suggest you use the Enterprise manager (gui tool to manage SQL).
Restoring a single table is not an option.
You can however restore a file or filegroup.
Make sure to backup before you start and NOT to restore database to its original name or original file location, to avoid acidents.
Normally you will have databases with only 2 files: the data at its Primary file group, and log file.
You may wish to create a new file group and move tables to the new group by recreating them there and exporting data from old table to new table. Then recreate indexes. This may prove to be complex as all tables and indexes have unique names and can't coexist with exact duplicate of them.

oh yea..... did I say backup?
well just in case backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup

Automatic database backup

These instructions are for Microsoft SQL Server Standard.
Go into the Enterprise manager.
Select your server on the tree view on the left. Go all the way down to "Management" and click on "Backup".
This will allow you to set up the backup.
Check the box called "Schedule". This will allow you to select a schedule for automatically performing the backup.
Good Luck.
