MS FRx: How to perform FRx backup?

Troubleshooting FRx can be tricky and in some cases the only way to fix the problem is to restore from a backup. That is why it is essential for a company to perform at least a weekly backup of FRx. FRx backup process is easy and it doesn’t require any SQL. To perform a backup you would need to copy a FRx SysData folder with all its subfolders to any other location. No financial data is stored in this folder. FRx uses the SysData for layouts and configuration information of reports.

For most FRx implementations FRx configuration files are shared between users in the SysData directory. A shared folder is usually located on the SQL server for GP. You can find the location of this folder by launching FRx and clicking the Admin -> Organization menu option -> SysData button. For the shared SysData folder, make sure to have users log out of FRx before doing the backup.

In order to restore a backup just copy over all backed up files and sub-folders into a SysData folder.
