If for any reason you are prompted to upload your backup file to DataShare, below is the expected type of file and the instructions on how to retrieve it.
To create a backup for your Sage 100 Contractor accounting package you will first need to launch the 'Database Administration for Sage 100 Contractor SQL' Tool
You will then be prompted to connect to SQL server using your credentials. You will need to log into the server which contains the company data you wish to backup.
Please ensure that you choose an account with the appropriate permissions. If you are unsure or do not have sufficient permissions, your IT Department will be able to assist you.
Once you have logged in to the server which contains your company data, click on 'TuneUp / Back Up / Restore Database'
A list of the companies that you have access to will be shown. Select the appropriate company and click 'Create Backup'.
Once complete you will get a notification informing you that the files were backed up successfully. After the notification is received that the backup was completed you will find the zipped backup folder in the chosen location.
Please reference Submitting a Backup File for instructions on submitting your backup in the DataShare system.
