It is imperative that you backup your data in a way that you can easily restore it.  To backup your data, simply copy the folder named nmcswDB to a safe location that you can recover from if necessary.  To restore your data, simply copy the nmcswDB folder back to your installation directory.  You can also copy the entire contents of the NM Collector Software directory to any location for easy use or recovery.

NOTE: The folder named nmcswDB is your database so don’t ever make any changes to the contents of this folder or you can, and most likely will, corrupt your copy of NM Collector Software and render it unusable! 

See “How To” videos for a tutorial on how to copy your database from one location to another.
