How to create a Backup in Strata Master

Backing up your data in Strata Master is incredibly important. There are various reasons why your computer or server may fail, and ensuring your data is appropriately backed up and stored is imperative.

To create a backup in Strata Master, please follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the File Menu
  2. Click Backup
  3. You will have 2 options. Either Using the default location and name, or entering your own location and name.
    • Default Location and Name

      This will create the backup file at a predetermined location. This location can be set by navigating to Configure > Display & Set Config Values and then clicking the Backup tab.

      The Backup directory is the location of your backup file on the server. The Client Backup Directory is the location of your backup file on the server when accessed from a workstation. Simply go into edit mode and click the  button to browse for the location that you wish to save your backups to.
    • Enter Location and Name

      Here you can browse to a location of your choice to save your backup file. Just click the button and search for the location you wish to backup to. We highly recommend creating a backup on an external device such as a USB drive that is kept off premises. This is to protect you against issues that may occur within your office.
  4. Once your backup location is decided, tick the box to include documents and images in the backup, or leave blank for a backup of only data.
    Note: For File Smart users, documents are stored in File Smart and there will be no option to backup documents from within Strata Master.
  5. Finally, click backup to complete the process.
