Preferences – Backup

Its very important that you regularly backup your data.

If you don’t and your computer fails you will loose al your data.

AIMS has a built in backup system which creates a zip file of your data.

To select the location to backup to click in the field for Backup to and it will bring up a dialogue allowing you to select where you wan to create your backups.

We recommend that you backup to a folder in something like a dropbox or google drive. If you backup on your local C drive and it fails you will have no data or backup.

If you tick the backup on exit checkbox AIMS will ask you if you want to backup each time you close AIMS. In the form that this brings up you can select a location other than the default if you wish, this allows you to for example do backups once a week to a USB drive plugged into your computer.
