Using the GO SAVE command is a simple way to make sure that you have a good backup of your entire server. The GO SAVE command presents you with Save menus that make it easy to back up your server, no matter what backup strategy you decide to use. It is a good idea to use menu option 21 of the GO SAVE command right after you install your server.
Menu option 21 of the GO SAVE command is the basis for all save strategies. This option allows you to perform a complete save of all the data on your server. Once you have used menu option 21, you can use other menu options to save parts of the server, or to use a manual save process.
Tips that involve the GO SAVE command:
- Using the Go Save command for a full system backup
- Back up all user data instructions
- Preparing a final backup
