Complete the following procedures only if we instruct you to back up your FileCabinet CS data.

Back up FileCabinet CS data

  1. Create an FCSbackups folder on your local hard drive.
  2. In the navigation pane, click the Applications link and then click the FileCabinet CS icon to open the application.

    Note: If you do not see these items, you do have access to applications through Virtual Client Office.

  3. In FileCabinet CS, choose File > Backup.
  4. Double-click a drawer or drawers to move them to the right (Selected) pane, or click the Select All button.

    Note: The open drawer (if any) is listed in the Selected pane automatically.

  5. In the Backup data group box, click the Modify Backup Location button, navigate to C:\FCSbackups, and click OK.

    Note: C$ on Client (V:) is your local C:\ drive in the Virtual Client Office environment.

  6. Close FileCabinet CS.

We need to modify your Virtual Client Office configuration before you restore your backed-up data into FileCabinet CS. We will let you know when we have made the necessary changes. Please do not restore your data until you hear from us.
