note Beginning next quarter, July 1st, we will enact an across-the-board approximate CPI price increase.
For the last two years, we have not altered fees in spite of rising expenses and increased overheads. Changes will typically only reflect a small increase of a few dollars.  Thank you all and we hope to continue our excellent relationship with our clients, and assure you of our continued quality service and support.

- Title - Backups

Click me to expand / collapse information.Backups

Backing up GeeDee Data Files - Ask your I.T. Professional if you are covered!


Backing up your data is an important process that you need to perform on a regular basis. Familiarising yourself with the backup process will ensure your valuable data is secure and can be quickly restored if needed. Backups are also important for the purpose of retaining historical records and the ability to access information from previous financial years.

Over the last two weeks we have been auditing newly installed Servers to discover that some additional backups being automatically performed on your servers are not operating correctly.

You can never have too many backups!

Once only used by very large businesses, automatic backups are now happening in the small to medium sized business, too. In the past, two of the main roadblocks to setting up automated back-up systems were the cost and not understanding the technology needed to do the remote back-up.

Today, there are many products available that will help you, are simple to use and won’t break the bank.

 

The GeeDee Desktop program carries out a user automated backup via the "End of Day" Daily Transaction print process. Remember, the Daily Transaction report is a Audit requirement that your Auditor may request (Do not forget to print your Daily Transaction lists!)
The new GDMS (Document System) uses a "live" backup system and there is no need for users to exit the program while the backup is being performed. A snapshot is taken of the data from during the day.

It is strongly recommended that users regularly copy the current data files to a piece of removable media eg: USB device, CD/DVD, remote offsite backup location etc. This information can then be taken "Off-Site" for safe keeping.
 

tipbulbWhere are my GeeDee and GDMS data files that I am required to back up for security?

Backing up your data is an important process that you need to perform on a regular basis. Familiarising yourself with the backup process will ensure your valuable data is secure and can be quickly restored if needed. Backups are also important for the purpose of retaining historical records and the ability to access information from previous financial years.

The GeeDee Realty Systems data files are copied to the folder Backup Location of - G:\Program Files\GeeDee\Proman\Archives\.
When the feature is enabled, the GDMS data files can be scheduled to automatically copy to the folder Backup Location of - G:\Program Files\GeeDee\ArcServer\SvrBackup\ and current data files are located in G:\Program Files\GeeDee\ArcServer\DB\.

 
These are the folder locations that you need to be sure are being backed up by your I.T Professionals!

 
For added security, the following is recommended:

Consider the storage media being used to store your backups. Due to the reliability and efficiency of the various high capacity storage media now available, we no longer recommend you use floppy disks for secure backup purposes. Recordable CDs/DVDs or USB storage devices are a better option.

Make multiple copies of your backed up data and store one or more copies of it off-site. This is especially recommended for backups taken at critical times such as immediately prior to starting a new financial year.

How often do I need to backup my company file?

Ideally, your company files should be backed up after each session, with the Session Report printed before closing the file.  Should something happen to your company file, you will be able to restore the backup of the last session and then use the Session Report to enter the missing data.

On a day to day basis, a backup of your company data files should be sufficient, but it is good practice to regularly have your I.T. professional perform a full backup of all data.
