Manual Backups

Manual backups make it easy to move your Virtual TimeClock software to a new computer or create a one-time backup for security purposes. This article will explain how to create a one-time manual backup of your database for each edition of Virtual TimeClock. For general information on backing up your Virtual TimeClock database, see the Overview of Backups article.

Note: If you are a Pro or Network Edition user, see our Automatic Scheduled Backups article to learn how to setup regular automatic backups.
