Having backups of your data is the most effective line of defense from data loss. This article is intended to let you know the locations of your data and the proper way to back up.
Data in your databases
Most of your data is stored in your databases, which are file packages that contain information, workspaces, settings as well as all the imported file attachments. On Mac OS X, databases look like file documents with a Pagico logo (see the image to the left); while on Windows and Linux, they are just folders with a special extension name “.pgco”.
Databases are created by you, and can be stored at any place on your computer. The most common place is your “Documents” folder (the default location of the “Create New Database” dialog). To back them up, simply make copies of the entire database (on Windows, make copies of the entire “.pgco”-named folder), and store these database copies at a safe location (e.g. your external hard drive). You could also compress them into “.zip” files and store them on a server.
Your Inbox data
Inbox data is stored separately from your databases. This is why your Inbox data is accessible no mater what database you’re currently using. Here are the locations of your Inbox data:
On Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Pagico/Settings/Inbox
On Windows: %USERPROFILE%/Pagico/Settings/Inbox
On Linux: ~/.config/pagico/Inbox
Backing up your inbox data is quite easy, too. Just locate your Inbox data based on your operating system, and make a copy of the Inbox folder. Store the copy somewhere safe and you’re all set.
