Table of contents

 In the case, if the user wishes to format his system and henceforth requires to take backup of his software data to avoid the chances of losing the same, following steps can be taken up. A pre- requisite to this process is to close the Software on all the systems including the server. Following this, a folder is required to be created, where the data taken from the software can be saved before formatting the system. Once the Backup process is completely done and data is saved to the newly created folder, a copy of this folder should be made at a different location to be on a safer side.

Manual Process for Back-up:

TDS data is available in Microsoft SQL Server folder. The location of the folder is as follows:

Go to Windows Start→ Run → Type Services.msc
Under Services → Check the Service “SQL Server (KDKSQL8)

Here KDKSQL8 is the Default instance used for the database of TDS software.

NOTE: – In case if there are multiple SQL services running as SQL Server (KDKSQL)SQL Server (KDKSQL1) or so on… 
Stop the Services for all the instances and then try to copy the Microsoft SQL Server folder as any running instance would interrupt from copying the folder.

This Completes the Back up Process.
