Backup & Restore Files

 
Genota provides full support for the archiving (back-up) and restoration of all information stored in the database tables. Both the Backup and Restore function treats all Notebooks, the Address Book, Categories and Configuration tables as a single entity, i.e. all data tables are affected.  
 
All backup files are created as standard zip format files therefore can be opened using many readily available file compression applications
