Once everyone has exited the software This is what it should look like.  You will need to copy the file names ServiceProgramData.mdb (This file is your database).

8. Right click on the database and select copy (CTRL + C). Double click into the folder you made and Right click and select Paste (CTRL + V).




 9. It should show up in the window as seen below.


IMPORTANT - Saving the database to the local Machine is NOT a recommended full backup procedure.  We ALWAYS recommend that you move this to an external drive or get a backup service such as "Carbonite" which backs up and moves those files to an external server every night.
