ADS backup – how to

If you’re using the client/server database (remote and/or purchased the Advantage database upgrade):

Zip up your data by following these instructions:
(your data might be on a network drive – if you’re not sure of the location, then from within CostGuard click File, View CostGuard ini file, and look at the Data= setting).
1) Click Start, My Documents, CostGuard Shared, Data, Main
2) press Ctrl+A (for All) to highlight all the items
3) right-click the mouse, select Send To
4) select Compressed (Zipped) Folder (wording may be different).
Now there will be a new file with an extension of .zip in that same folder.

Send that zip folder to support@costguard.com

If the folder is too large to send using your email you can use DropBox and send us the link or set up a free trial of Sendthisfile.
