Backup Database

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.
