    Filemaker Server - backup



      Filemaker Server - backup

      Your post

      Finally moved my database to Filemaker Server 10 and trying to find the right backup strategy.

      Server 10; OS 10.6; Imac  2GHz

      Clients (9-10 clients) a mix of 10.6 and 10.5 FMP10.0

      Using FMS's built in automated backup to the local drive.


      From reading the foums, I know that we should not use Time Machine to backup open/running copies of FMP databases. But is it OK to take back-ups of the back-up folder (in the local drive) using Time Machine???


      Prior to moving to the Server, we were manually taking back-ups (ie closing DB and copying the files to a hard drive). Main purpose of the Server is to automate the backup system, but want to automate a backup strategy to a hard drive or other removeables.
