Microsoft Access Backup Database Template
If you are concerned about making good backups of your database, then this template is for you. Most backup solutions don't properly backup Access files. They have a hard time copying files that are open or in use. This is an Access-based solution that deals with that problem. This template includes a form that you can copy into any database which will ensure that all of your database files are backed up from the source folder to a specified destination folder.
In addition to just the template, there are also several videos which give you a good background on how to perform proper backups, how to use Google's Backup and Sync cloud service, how to perform automated backups, how to kick other users out of the database at a specified time (if they leave the office and forget to close Access) and how you can run your automated backup at a specific time, like 4am. Watch the first two free videos above for more information.
If you'd like to download a sample copy of the database template, you can do so here. This is a NON-EDITABLE version of the backup template which will let you see it work in action.
