Looking for backup to floppies software

Looking for backup to floppies software

Looking for backup to floppies software

We have developed a stand alone application for distribution to multiple sites with various Win9X OSs. EAch will use either Access or the new MSDE as a database. Our app is basically self installable.

We are looking for a suitable way to provide backup and restore of the database. The floppy device must be used since that is the only device we can count on being there.

Anyone know of such a product?

Thanks, JohnK

RE: Looking for backup to floppies software

Um I don't know if this'll hekp but I know in sql it's possible to write to a plain text file. If you want to go down this path you may need to find someone with a bit of sql/access experience. Also plain text may be too large to fit onto 1 disk but it's a start. People in the sql forum may be able to help.

Hi rotovegasBoy,

Thanks for the response.

The same post in the Win95 forum resulted in another solution which we will use.

Thanks again.
