Periodically remove outdated and accumulating Noah backup files

  by Support Specialist Ann Monnens

 

The Noah 4 Backup Scheduler is set by default to back up your Noah database automatically. The backup will proceed even when Noah 4 is in use, and if the computer is shut off at the scheduled time the backup will complete upon boot up. The backup files are stored at C:\Program Files (x86)\HIMSA\Noah 4\backup.

These automatic database backups have saved the day many a time when a location had not thought to perform regular backups, then had a computer problem, and discovered that Noah was taking care of the backup for them!

The backup files do accumulate however, and if you have a large database, the weekly backup files can consume significant hard disk space over time. Periodically remember to check the backup folder and delete older files.
