You should backup your Herschel system, at least once every day.  We recommend you backup your \HERSCHEL folder and all the sub-folders under it, especially \HERSCHEL\LIVEDATA.

Note Herschel will log users out after 90 minutes of inactivity.  This makes backing up your data easier, as some backup systems will not save files if they are being used.

Over the years our customers have had a fire, a flood, several thefts, virus attacks, hard-disk failures, numerous power-cuts, and lots of “finger trouble”. In all cases where they had a backup of their data, we’ve got them up and running quickly.

Remember to periodically do a test restore from your backup.
