Backup Your Microsoft Access Databases Properly

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, you will learn how to properly backup your Microsoft Access databases using the Access database backup routine and Google Backup and Sync.

Damian from Tampa, Florida (a Gold Member) asks: I've been using Google Backup and Sync like you recommended in your New PC Setup video, however it's not backing up my Access databases properly. Any advice you can give?


Members will learn how to automate this process with one click of a button. We will also learn how to perform an automatic backup when the database is closed, and to force all of the other users out of the database at a set time, like 4am.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

I run the DB from home for a company. I have remote access to their server to upload inventory, etc. I put a backup DB on their server using your backup-database template to backup up my FEaccde file & 2 BEfiles daily. Heres the catch: I must go out & manually run this backup file. I even added a date stamp field to it so if I dont get to run them that nite, I can do it the next morning using yesterdays date. My question is this: can I open another instance of Access when the user opens the DB in the morning to run the backup DB in the background during the day? I found a code snippet online & can see the backup DB opening, but then it closes. The company DB throws everyone out at 18:00. It would be great to have the backup DB run automatically at 19:00. Then I could set it & forget it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sure. Just use ShellEx to call the other Access DB and then have it close itself when done with "Quit."

I got the backup vba code for the database on a click event (thank you for the video) but I would also like to save any edits before it does the backup in case I forgot to save ahead of time. How do I do this if I have multiple objects open and the button is on my main menu?

I'm not following. Can you explain in more detail please?

Do you want to loop through all the open forms, save/close them, and then run backup? If so, I think it's on Rick's list already for a tech help.
