The TASKS area of the backup management screen allows you begin a manual FULL backup as well as run a database maintenance utility.
The restore backup option is used to restore a backup version of your database. This function requires assistance from an RxWorks Support technician to activate. If you require this assistance, please contact our RxWorks Support Team.
These features will use the paths configured for your backup files.

Running a Manual Full Backup Task
The Run Manual Full Backup option begins the FULL backup operation. This is useful to ensure you have a current backup before running a mass update of prices, or if a backup has failed and you wish to force the backup to run straight away.
The Manual Full Backup is not exactly the same as the automated Daily Full Backup.
