  • Auto Backup On Exit: set this option if you want to backup all databases when you exit the program.
  • Include Image Files in the backup: book cover images are stored in the c:\handy_lib\data\db\cover_img folder. If included in the backup file, they slow down the backup process and make the backup file (zip) huge. (new in version 4.0)
  • Backup Folder: define the folder where the backup file will be saved.

    1. Restore: restores library database.
    2. Restore Folder: restores content of the database data folder.
