We know that everyone is always very busy, making downtime always scarce. So it is understandable that backing up data such as your saved clients, key hook locations and custom series can be a low priority.
Unfortunately all PCs have their glitches, be it a virus, hardware failure or simply rushing through an upgrade and making the wrong selection. So for that reason we have added a behind the scenes backup feature.
So this is how it works:
Every time InstaCode is closed, a backup file of all your custom data is created on your hard drive. The backup file is labelled with the date. So obviously, if you should happen to open and close InstaCode several times on the same day, only the last backup will be kept.
However, to ensure that you hard drive does not fill up with backups, InstaCode will only keep backups from the 30 most recent days, effectively giving you a minimum of a month's worth of backups.
WH Software still recommends that you periodically move your backups onto another piece of hardware (such as an external hard disk or another PC) encase of something truly catastrophic, like a fire or a laptop being stolen.
With the recent release of Microsoft's new operating system; Widows 8, new PCs are sure to start arriving with this new operating system. WH Software has already take the step of testing InstaCode on Windows 8. We have made the required changes to ensure the world's best Key Data Software will remain at the forefront of computing solutions for the modern locksmith.
