Things happen. Sometimes really bad things happen, like when your main ShipWorks computer decides to crash taking all of your order and shipment data with it. The good news is that this scenario can easily be rectified using automated database backups. It’s built right into ShipWorks and it is easy to set up.
Setting up an Action in ShipWorks to automatically backup your ShipWorks database makes it quick and easy to get back to business if and when the worst-case scenario should occur. Like most of our Actions, it’s completely customizable. You get to specify when to backup, where to save them, and even how many backups should be kept. If your ShipWorks computer should ever crash and burn, having ShipWorks backed up makes it easy to quickly restore your latest ShipWorks data and pick back up where you left off.
If you haven’t already thought about disaster recovery, now might be a good time. Check out this video to learn how to set up your automatic ShipWorks database backup. It only takes about five minutes to set up and will give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your ShipWorks data is protected.
