Support Tip: The Noah 4 Backup Scheduler

  by Support Specialist Ann Monnens

 

In the Noah Console under Database Administration you will find the Noah 4 Backup Scheduler. By default the Scheduler is set to backup your Noah database every Monday at 3:00pm. 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 you may want to check the backup folder and delete older files.

The Noah Console is located at Start, Programs, HIMSA, Noah Console.:
