data backups

Postby doug » Fri Apr 30, 2004 7:33 am

I am doing a data backup weekly from the church computer onto a floppy disk. I then restore that disk to the program on my laptop I keep at home. I am noticing that the program copy running on my laptop does not have the last 3 weeks of giving data. The church computer has not had a reindex done for quite a while. Does that need to be done?

Will that solve the problem? Thanks.

That wouldn't hurt anything. You should reindex the church computer, verify that the data you expect is indeed there, then make a new backup and take that home.

Doug, Hi!
If you backup prior to 'posting' you need to do a posting at home before info shows.
