How do I create a backup?

Created on  | Last modified on 


This article explains how to create a backup of your data.



  1. Ensure you have opened your data file and logged into the company you wish to backup
    • If you have setup multiple users in Sage 50 Premium or Quantum, ensure you are in single user mode under sysadmin
  2. Go to File, Backup
  3. In the Sage 50 - Backup window, enter the File Name
    • Include the date as part of this name (ex. UC141222)
    • If you do not change the file name, it will attempt to overwrite the last backup file that was created
  4. Select the folder where you want to save the backup by clicking Browse
    • The backup file path used will become the default path for the next backup that will be created
    • Do not put the file location within a .SAJ folder
  5. Click OK to start the backup
