Craig had the Free Version of SpendMap installed on his laptop (including the database), and the voltage regulator went out, so he couldn’t power up his machine.
Luckily, he was able to make an image of the drive, so we were able to get his system up and running on his new PC.
Since laptop and desktop computers are not as reliable as servers, please consider installing SpendMap on a network server by following the “Network Installation Instructions”, in the Getting Started Documentation that came with your free Software.
You’ll sleep better at night with your database resting peacefully on a nice, safe network drive, even if you don’t need multi-user access to the system.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
We did this at installation time and has worked well. Fortunately the SpendMap notifications, notify you when the system does not back up which alerted us to the fact our company back-up system had a glitch and wasn’t backing up company data either. THANKS SPENDMAP!
You’re welcome, Gwen. Thanks for sharing. Glad we were able to help with things beyond SpendMap itself.
