Why do you do a backup? How often do you do a backup? How do you do a backup onto a thumb drive?

MASTER INSTALL VS. MASTER INSTALL CUSTOMIZED VS. BACKUP

Master Install - USB Stick is used to install the Qest4 on a

computer or computers. This is what is sent from Qest,

LLC. along with your system.

Master Install Customized - if you add custom products

and custom tests you will want to make a Master Install

Customized copy for your business. You will use this in the

event you want to install the Qest4 on other computers or

as a backup install in the event there is a computer crash,

fire or flood. This will keep you from having to re-add

custom products and re-create your tests.

A Backup can be made to an external source (USB Stick or

external hard drive) in which current data is copied so that

in the event of a fire, flood or computer crash it can be

used to put on a new computer and start over where you

left off so that no client data, client tests etc. are lost.

HOW TO MAKE A BACKUP
ALWAYS keep an offsite back up on a thumb drive or external hard drive.  You can go to the C drive and copy the Qest File and paste to a thumb drive or external hard drive.  If you are testing on a thumb drive be sure to keep a back up of that as well.
It is a good idea when you get your program set up like you want (items in custom lists and tests you develop) to make a Master copy on a USB and your Desktop.
