How to backup GWAVA 4 configuration, QMS and anti-spam dictionary files.


GWAVA 4 already has some backup mechanisms in place. Each critical piece of GWAVA has a backup directory.

GWAVA4\config\backup (Configuration DB backups)
GWAVA4\services\qms\data\backup (QMS DB backups)
GWAVA4\services\asengine\configs\"config_id"\backup (Spam dictionary backups)
GWAVA4\services\qms\data\storage\ (your Quarantined messages are here)

Have your backup software only back up the directories listed above. The rest of the GWAVA directory structure isn't critical.
