InstaCode allows users to save several types of user data; client records, master key systems, hooks locations, favourite series and series notes.
Regular backups are important. It is also very important that backups are transferred to separate media and then stored in a secure location away from your computer systems.
If you don't backup it up, you have to be happy to lose it.
InstaCode produces a backup automatically when closing.
The automatically produced backup files are named
These are saved to:
As the file name created using the date, only one backup is saved each day as any previous backup file for that day will be overwritten.
A maximum of 30 backups will be saved and the oldest backup files will be deleted if there are more than 30 when the backup file is saved.
To manually produce a backup:
Backup user data...
Backup files should be copied off your computer onto separate media. Backups should then be stored according to good business and computing practice to safeguard your data investment.
The cost of producing permanent backups is extremely small compared to the cost of re-entering data.
A backup of user data can only be restored to a new installation of InstaCode (i.e. No user data has been stored).
To restore a backup of user data to a new installation of InstaCode:
If the progress bar is not seen then check that the
ICUserDump.ifs file has been deleted. If it has not been deleted then it will not have been imported and the reason for this it that the InstaCode database already has user data saved, preventing the backup from restoring.
In this situation, check the new installation for what user data is saved.
If you are happy to discard it, delete the folder
C:\ProgramData\WH Software\IC\9.0\Data and reinstall InstaCode with
