How to backup ARPOS data?

Use Windows Backup or one of commercial products, for example, Abacre Backup.

The backup program should backup the following files located in
\My Documents\Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale 10\

  • default.cfg (main configuration file)
  • billtemp.cfg (bill configuration file)
  • arpos.fdb or arpos-test.fdb (DB file, to check out which DB file you use in production: in Login window press More button).

These files contains all needed data for recovery. You may download the program itself any time from our web site.

If you want to simply put database and configuration files into a zip archive then execute the command in menu Help - Backup. It will create a backup file with your database and configuration files and open backup folder after that. Note: if you are using several computers working in network then this command must be executed on server computer.

What people are saying:
"For years we used one MS DOS restaurant POS system until we finally found a good Windows-based replacement: Abacre Restaurant Point of Sale. I compared it with many other programs and I stopped on ARPOS, because it's well-done and well-priced. So we bought touch screen monitors, new computers and ARPOS. The change from the old MS DOS system into new Windows-based system was dramatic: in ARPOS we use images for menu items for faster navigation, reports are amazing and the program itself is quite configurable and handy. Since that time I am a definitive fan of ARPOS and I recommend it to my business friends."
