Recommended Best Practice:There are several ways to backup and recover your NM Collector Data. Here are but a few. Whichever choice you make, be sure to practice backup and recovery BEFORE you need it so you know that it works!
It is best to copy the software from the USB flash drive to your main computer's hard drive and run it from there rather than directly from the USB flash drive. It will run substantially faster from your hard drive than from the USB flash drive.
You can then back up your data to the USB flash drive on a regular basis for safe keeping. You can still use the USB flash drive on any computer you want including those of friends and family if you choose to share your collection with them. See “How To” videos for a tutorial on how to copy NM Collector Software from your USB flash drive to your desktop computer and how to copy your database from one location to another.
Also, please see our Backup and Restore Help Desk article for even more information.
To avoid data loss, please use proper procedure to remove USB Flash Drive from computer!
