Importance of Backing Up Your Data


Accidents happen; we may not be able to prevent them completely but can prepare our data in case of an emergency. Luckily, all of our software products contain handy features to give you peace of mind that your data is safe if an accident does occur.

Taking advantage of these features will ensure your data is well protected from the unlikely event of a virus infection, computer crash, theft, hard drive failure and physical damage.


Clik Service

Many may already be aware of the options Clik Service provides to help back up your data. The software contains automated features that will save the entire database onto one folder every day by default (simply activate these features in your CS settings). You can select a server location, run a local backup and change the regularity of your backup by viewing your ‘Backup Settings’ under the Clik Service ‘Settings’ header. As an extra precaution, we recommend you ask your IT to back up the SQL files as well.

To see the full directions to configure your backups, see our knowledge base article on our website. It is always best to double-check to make sure you have set up your backup to the correct location; if in doubt, give our team a call on 0117 902 2012.


NICEIC Cert Software

Within the existing Cert Software package, there is a backup and restore option which allows you to keep your certificates safe from harm. You can select a default location or specify another location to save your data to. This option is a manual feature that will require you to make your amendments in your file menu and launch the backup utility.

If you need to back up your data on NICEIC Cert Software V1, read our knowledge base article for more information.


New NICEIC Cert Software

With the release of a whole new upgrade, you may be wondering what backup features will be included in the new NICEIC Cert Software. We are following in the footsteps of Clik Service and including an auto-backup feature that will sync your data to the desired location every time you log into your software.

We will be releasing more information on this closer to launch as well as dedicated knowledge articles to show you what to do step-by-step.
