Checking this box will create a separate folder in the result folder for all the report data related files.

 

Nested Drawings:

Checking this box will create a separate folder in the result folder for all the nested drawings.

 

Code Single Drawings:

Checking this box will create a separate folder in the result folder for the drawings of each part that was checked as code single part.

 

Database Backups

 

Automatic Database Backups

Checking this box will force Router-CIM Automation Suite to back up the databases when Router-CIM Automation Suite is loaded for the first time each day. The databases will be stored in a folder on your C: drive for later restoration.  The folder is C:\Router-CIM\Automation\Database\Backups or you can set the folder that you would like the backups to go to. Inside that folder will be a other folders with the date and time stamp as a name. These contain the databases for your system that were present on that date.

 

This backup happens once each day, on the first start of Router-CIM Automation Suite, so the database is backed up in the state it was in when last used.

 

These back up files can be large and if you do not clean out the Backups folder, you can have many, many large files in there. This could take considerable drive space.  These files could be copied onto a CD or some other permanent storage frequently and this folder cleaned of old, out of date files.

 

Removing the check from this box will force Router-CIM Automation Suite to ignore the back up procedure.  This is dangerous because if you make a mistake in your settings or jobs, there is no backup copy and no way to retrieve lost data or settings.  CIM-Tech cannot get data back from the database once it is changed. The backup is your best solution to retrieving lost settings or materials, etc.

 

Automatically Delete Old Backups

These back up files can be large and if you do not clean out the Backups folder, you can have many, many large files in there. This could take considerable drive space.  These files could be copied onto a CD or some other permanent storage frequently and this folder cleaned of old, out of date files.

 

If Automatic Database Backups is enabled, this option will continue to create backups and keep the files in the defined location

 

Settings_System_Folders_DBOld2

 

If this option is enabled, you will be able to define the amount of days to keep the database backup files. Use the up and down arrow to adjust the amount of days that you would like to keep the database backup files for.

 

Settings_System_Folders_DBOld

 

Backup Folder

This is the path to the folder where you store your 'Automatic Database Backups'. The folder, by default, is C:\Router-CIM\Automation\Database\Backups. You can set this to a shared drive location by identifying the file path you would like.

 

Settings_System_Folders_DBBackupLocation

 

The 'Backup Location Is A Network Share' option will automatically be checked by Router-CIM if it sees that the location is a shared drive.

 

Note: Shared folders must have a mapped drive letter.

 

Please refer to the 'Restore New' or 'Restore Over' section for information regarding bringing in a backup database.
