Backing up VDV

Ragnar Tryggvason Updated by Ragnar Tryggvason

Backing up VDV is highly recommended for all local instances of VDV. With a backup, you can restore the system in the event of hardware failure.

  1. Back up the whole Vista Data Vision folder (default location is "C:\Vista Data Vision\") to a secure location regularly. Daily or more frequent backups are recommended.
  2. Back up any extra components, such as the File Converter or the VDV-Task folder.
  3. Back up all locations where raw data is stored.
  4. Backup all config files for collection software such as FTP Servers (i.g. FileZilla) or Loggernet.
    For FileZilla, go to File -> Export. This will give a choice of what to export. After choosing what setting to export, press OK and FileZilla will create "filezilla.xml" and open a save dialog where the save location is selected.
    The default folder for the Campell LoggerNet is "C:\Campbellsci\LoggerNet".
