The Facility that comes with EasyAs can backup to most devices, other hard drives, USB Thumb Drives, Disk Drives and other similar devices, except for CD's. Our facility will not Backup to a CD... If you want to copy to a Cd you will need to do a Manual Backup using your cd copy software.

 

 

 

Manual Backup - Series 3

 

When you want to Backup to CD's - Or when performing a Manual Backup

The facility that comes with EasyAs is not able to backup to a CD. This is because EasyAs cannot talk to your CD Burning Software. If you want to backup your data to a CD, you will have to do this using your CD Burning Software.

 

To Manually Backup your Data the first thing you will need to do is to locate the subdirectory on your computer where the data files are located. If you installed the software into the standard installation directory then your data files will be located in this location:

The data files are located in the EasyAs Program Subdirectory: C:\EasyAs\easytax

To do a manual backup you will need to copy the main data files used by the program, these files contain all your information:

The TWO Data Files to backup are called: EasyTax2.mdb and EasyTax3.mdb

 

Manually copy the files to your backup location using the copy and paste method provide by windows (or whatever is required by your CD copy software) Treat these files as you would any other file, its just a simple method of copying the files as you would if you were to copy a photo etc..

 

If copying to a CD then you will need to use your CD Software in the usual manner you would to Backup Data Files (not music files)... The process is similar but some CD Software programs will want to know what type of file it is.

Your CD Copy software will usually have a selection menu where you can select which type of backup to perform.. In this case we want to do a Data Backup or Data Copy, something like that, just don't select music as your CD Copy Software may not get it right.
