There’s More to Backing Up Dynamics GP Than Meets the Eye
Dynamics GP provides a mechanism inside the application to set up regular backups. Administrators simply go to the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu and select Tools->Maintenance->Backup. From there a wizard walks you through the process of the first backup and setting up recurring, scheduled backups.
Not so fast. The built-in backup process in Microsoft Dynamics GP only backs up the data in the SQL tables. This is a fine place to start, but it's really just the minimum backup for most companies.Not covered are customized forms, reports, and financial statement formats-which many companies accumulate in significant numbers-- that would be costly and time consuming to replace. Then there are integrations, notes, collection letters and more that make up the full Dynamics GP ecosystem.
