Utilities | Archive Transactions
Overview: This option is used to keep the cash register at optimal performance. Although it will remain fast through thousands of transactions, when 40K-50K transactions accumulate, it is good to remove outdated sales information to a “history” file.
Archive Transactions Instructions
After the archive is complete you MUST BACKUP THE FILE THAT WAS MADE.
- Select Utilities | Archive Transactions.
- Enter the date for removing transactions. Typically this is several months back.
- Select Archive Data.
Note: It is recommended this be stored on an external drive, but it can also be stored in another folder on your computer.
- Select My Computer | C:\CSM\Backups and find the all files with "Archive" int the name and make a manual copy of those files. There should be a POSBackupBeforeArchive, PreARchive and PostArchve file.
