Create Automated Data Backups

Create automated backups via Windows Task Scheduler or some other automated job by calling CashFootprint from the command line.

/backup - Tell CashFootprint to start the backup process instead of opening the POS.

/f - specify the folder to place the backup

/s - silent mode and will hide the Backup Complete message.  Errors messages, if any, will still be displayed.

Example use: CashFootprint.exe /backup /f "c:\sql backups" /s
