Backup & Restore

Introduction

The PINNACLE™ TPN Manager Software database consists of all of the system configuration information, the patient data, the TPN orders, the history records, etc. plus the local Compounder Control Panel settings.   Backing up all of this data should be performed periodically, with a daily backup being strongly recommended to be performed at minimum.  The more frequently a data backup is performed, the fewer records will be lost in the case of a database failure. 

Two different backup and restore methods are provided with the PINNACLE™ system.

  • The legacy backup and restore batch files is a manual method that uses one CD-ROM for each backup.   The legacy backup and restore icons appear on the Windows desktop labeled "Pinnacle Backup.bat" and "Pinnacle Restore.bat".
     
  • The Backup & Restore program comes with Pinnacle version 1.5.0 and higher.   The Backup & Restore program appears on the Windows desktop and is labeled "Pinnacle Backup".   This program can make backups automatically and is more effecient than the legacy backup and restore batch files.

The backup files used by the two backup and restore methods are not compatible.


Backup & Restore program

The Backup & Restore program appears on the Windows desktop and is labeled "Pinnacle Backup".   The program is menu driven and has it's own help pages.   To access Backup & Restore help pages, start the program and click on any help icon (question mark).

The Backup & Restore program can be used to manually create a backup, restore the database from a backup, and change the automatic backup settings.   Refer to the Backup & Restore program help pages for further details.
