4. The next step will be saving the backup to an accessible place through the file structure showing on the following screen.

Type in the file address or click the file on the right of the screen to browse for a location on your network or local machine to save the backup for.

The File name field is editable. It is recommended to add the current date or company name for backups to the file name field(highlighted above).

The location of the file will appear in the Backup Location field.

5. Click Next. A progress bar will show on the screen.

A prompt will appear letting you know when the backup has been created. (The longer Tradepoint has been in use the larger the database so, it may take a short while or longer while to create a backup)

The backup will appear in the specified location as a .bak file. In this case it was saved to the desktop.
