Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Making backups, part of Office 365: Access Essential Training.
- Access is one of the only programs…in the Office Suite that doesn't feature…an auto-recovery option in the case…of a program crash or unexpected shut down.…Because of this, you want to make sure…that you're backing up your databases…on a regular basis, luckily Access makes it…really easy to create backups so there is…absolutely no reason to not protect yourself and your data.…In order to create a backup, we'll just come up here…and visit our backstage view by going to the File tab…and then I'm going to come down…and hit the Save As button here.…We have a couple of different options…of how we want to save our database.…
The one I'm interested in right now…is the Back Up Database option here at the bottom.…We'll go ahead and select that and then press Save As.…That'll open up our standard Save As dialogue box…where we can browse to a specific location…in this case it's just going to put it right back where…my original file was, which is in the Chapter 1 folder.…Then we can take a look at the File name down here.…
