The Database Backup Scheduler automatically backs up the CurrentWare database (CWNPFB.CWD) at a scheduled time. You can choose between backing up the database on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

The databases will be backed up into the following default directory:

\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwServer\Backup\ 

Up to a maximum of 10 databases will be backed up into the folder. It will keep the newest 10 databases and automatically delete the older ones. You can perform a one-time back up by clicking on the “Run Backup Now” button.
