Keeping good accounting records is key to business success. Backing up the books is equally important when you’re using Sage Instant Accounts software. Make sure your data is always protected by following these tips and reducing your risk of losing your work.

  • Make sure you take a backup at least once a day if not more. The greater the amount of data that you enter, the more often you must backup.

  • Give the backups sensible names and use the last transaction number wherever possible. This can really help you if you need to restore your data.

  • Always keep a diary note of the last transaction number entered that day, and you can cross reference this against the backup name that you have given it.
