Regardless of your other back-up methods, it's a good idea to make frequent back-ups of your Peachtree data on your hard drive. To do so, choose File | Back Up, and then click Back Up Now. Select a folder on your hard drive to store the backups, and then accept the default file name. Click the Save button, then click OK when Peachtree informs you of the back-up size. This generally only takes a couple minutes to carry out. Make sure to also continue your usual back-ups onto removable media such as floppy disks, CD-R, or tape. Having additional back-ups on your hard drive gives you additional options in case something unexpected happens.
