Backing Up your Tournaments

Backing up your league to removable media, such as a floppy, USB memory key/jumpdrive or other removable media is highly recommended. Because events, such as hard drive failures or damage, accidental erasure or computer viruses can happen, this can ruin a season’s worth of work and data.

In addition to backing up your leagues, we recommend backing up your System Files (for different style definitions, custom templates, etc.).   These options are only available if there is no tournament opened in the program under Tournament Maintenance

Note: We do not recommend backing up directly to CDR, CDRW or DVD media.


To back up a tournament, do the following:


1.Insert your floppy disk or other removable media for backup

2.In the opening screen of the program, click Tournament Maintenance. (If your tournament is already open, click League Utilities > Backup This League(L2))

3.Click Backup Tournament.

4.Select the tournament to backup and click BACKUP (If you tournament is already open, ignore this step)

5.Click RETRY if using a floppy to save the backup to floppy. Otherwise click CONTINUE to specify a backup location.

6.In the SAVE IN list, select the location to save the backup and click SAVE.

7.After the backup has finished, remove the floppy disk or other removable media.

Backing up System Files, Local Awards Files and Common Address can be done in similar fashion.  However these backups only need to performed when changes occur in these areas.
