I cannot do a backup.

 In

**WINDOWS 95/98/ME ONLY**

Check to make sure the backup batch filename has been set in the program (C-C-7-H). It should contain the name of the batch file BACKX or BACK. The batch file must be modified based on the backup device you are using. You must use a text editor to modify the contents of the BACK.BAT file. To backup the files onto a floppy disk. This is what the BACK.BAT file should contain:

echo off
cls
echo”
echo About to do a backup of the Rapid Rental data files…
pause
pkzip -&uv a:data.zip *.dat
echo Backup completed.
pause
video main

If you have Windows 95/98/ME and want to backup to CD-R or Tape check the documentation that came with your CD-Recordable Software or Tape Software, or have a technican come in to setup your backup.

**ANY VERSION OF WINDOWS BACKING UP TO ZIP DISK**

To backup the files onto a Zip Drive. This is what the BACK.BAT file should contain:

echo off
cls
echo”
echo About to do a backup of the Rapid Rental data files…
pause
erase data.zip
pkzip data.zip *.dat
copy data.zip [driveletter]:
echo Backup completed.
pause
video main

Note: the drive letter in brackets should be replaced with the drive letter of your zip drive. In most cases the drive letter is D or E .

BACKUPS SHOULD BE DONE ON A DAILY BASIS!
