The Backup and Restore feature allows you to back up the records only
for use in a transfer, typically to a newer version of the program (without records).
It is a good policy to make a Program - Backup Copy of the program and its data
before using the File Backup and Restore feature.

The two different versions will not conflict with each other.
The File - Backup & Restore feature does not back up the entire program package.

This feature is not included in some early versions of our program. Also, because of the variances in program development over time, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to restore your records from an older version of the program to a newer one.
We advise against using the Restore feature except when instructed to by our technicians.
Using the Restore feature may result in duplicate data and other data anomalies.

you will need to buy a new unlock code before you can transfer your records.
Again, we recommend regular backups of your records and program
to preserve your records and avoid having to purchase a new unlock code.
For details on this procedure see Program - Backup Copy.
