DriveWorks Pro Tech Tip: Automating Your Backups

ThePack and Go functionalityinsideDriveWorks Data Managementis a great tool that lets you take a copy of your existing DriveWorks Group and package it into a .drivepkg file.

You can select which data from your existing Group, along with additional files, that you want to include. Once a .drivepkg is created, you can move the file to the required location and unpack it, to create a new Individual Group that includes a copy of your packed implementation with the correct references. This makes it a great way to quickly create backups of your implementation that can be moved and restored easily.

To make this process even easier, you can automate the creation of these backups using thePack and Go Specification Macro Taskincluded inside theSpecification PowerPack. You can getDriveWorks Autopilotto run this on a schedule, automating even more, using theDriveWorks Autopilot Schedule Connector.
