Although PKZIP is still an option, Semarca has created a more user-friendly option within utilities
Prior to making any major changes to your database (i.e.: billing, expo roll-out, etc.), it is a good idea to pkzip your database. This will allow you the opportunity to easily retrieve any information you might need.
MS DOS prompt or command prompt
Type Q: and <enter> - (if your SAMS resides on a different drive letter than Q, enter that drive letter).
the underline (_) indicates a space
(filename = any name that you want to give it - for example, mbr01012001)
If you receive an error message here, please enter copy ..\pkzip*.* and enter step 6 again. If you still get an error message, please call TSC.
Watch the screen and make sure it doesn't display any messages about files being open.
Once it completes, it will display the Q: prompt
Type EXIT to leave MS DOS prompt.
