Script to backup Navision Native Database

Hello Guys,

I have also to backup my Navision Manually, Can you please tell me how to to make a script to automatically backup my Native Navision Database.

Thanks All


You can use a program called Hotcopy which comes with Nav and set a scheduled task for this. Details of how to use it are on the Nav CD/DVD (in the Doc folder) in the installation guide w1w1ism.pdf

…and w1w1bkup.pdf [:)]

Well thay say the hotcopy is not so realiable when doing large amount of data.


Ask your partner about Nav add-ons for backing up (Expand-IT is one that comes to mind) else consider going the SQL route.
