    How can I back up my EPOS databases?

    Backup 'Data' File

    Within SellerDeck EPOS there is a function to create a backup of your products, however this does not backup your sales history.
    To do this, please follow the steps below:

    1. Log into EPOS
    2. Go to the 'Data' menu and select 'Backup'
    3. Click 'Backup Now'

    Restore using Data backup file:

    1. Go to the 'Data' menu and select 'Restore'
    2. Browse to where the backup is located
    3. Select the backup file from the 'Backups Available to Restore from:' window and click 'Restore Now'

    Backing Up All Databases

    To backup your entire EPOS system, a Batch file can be used which is on your installation CD in a folder called EPOSBACKUP (a copy of these files and instructions are attached to this article).
    To install this follow the steps below:
    Copy the file 'EPOS database backup.bat' into the C:\Checkout' folder on your PC. (You may get security warnings)
    Copy the file 'BACKUP.lnk' (Shortcut icon) onto your desktop
    Now you can backup your entire EPOS system by double-clicking on the 'BACKUP' icon on your desktop.

    The backups are saved to the 'C:\checkout\backup\databases' folder.

    Restoring All Backed Up Databases

    To restore using the mdb files created in the 'backup/databases' folder in case of a database corruption:

    Browse to the 'C:\checkout\backup\databases' folder
    With EPOS closed, copy all six databases into the 'C:\Checkout folder'
    Start SellerDeck EPOS normally.
