This function will back-up your entire WebSched database. You can perform this function at any time. The general rule is: Back-up all data that you cannot afford to lose, and cannot afford the time to re-enter.
In addition to this optional back-up function the Autoschedule students routine will AUTOMATICALLY back-up the current database every time it is run. WebSched will maintain FIVE backed-up data sets.
We expect and encourage you to use the Autoscheduler to explore better schedules. If your explorations lead you to swampland, you can rely on the backed-up data sets go back safer territory.
The Restore menu will offer you the five autobacked-up data sets. If you wish to restore the data from an optional back-up, you redirect the restore to the correct file name.
