Archiving your reports and log files

When you use saveDT to back up your data, this saves all your archived reports and log files. If you want to also migrate your current report statistics and log files, you need to archive them first, before you start the migration process.

Note that if you archive before the end of the reporting period, the system overwrites the archive file for the previous period. To safeguard previously-archived data, make a backup of the archived files before you use the following procedure.

  1. Archiving report statistics: From the Welcome window, select Operations —> Statistics.
  2. Click Object Type —> Report.
  3. Press Select in Report Name.

    The system displays a list of reports.

  4. Select a report, then click OK.

    The system archives the report.

  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each report you want to archive.
  6. Archiving log files: Click Object Type —> Logs.
  7. Press Select in Log Name.

    The system displays a list of log files.

  8. Select a log file, then click OK.

    The system archives the log file.

  9. Repeat steps 6 through 8 for each log file you want to archive.
  10. Close the Statistics window.

Next step: Starting the migration process.
