I back up the db back up file created by using the Progress probkup nightly on
the NT box. I also back up the Vantage and Progress files nightly since they
live on the Novell file server and it is backed up nightly.

If my NT box crashes I reinstall NT, Progress and Vantage then restore the db
and I'm back in business.

Out of curiosity, when you all do your backups on the Vantage db, what
all do you backup? Do you backup the entire Epicor dir and its contents
or just the vantage.db?
