To perform a manual backup from within FP2, the Backup File Path needs to be set.

 

Set the Backup File Path in the Setup --> Custom Settings --> Other --> Paths/Files tab.

 

To create the backup file, go to the:

File --> Data Utilities --> Backup Now option.

 

You will see the following Dos window appear:

This process can take some time especially for the larger departments or departments that store large files/pictures inside the database.  The manual backup can be run at any time, and allows all users to continue working in FP2 while it is running.
