Automatic SQL Backups

Argos 8 performs a nightly backup of your SQL database to the C:\ProgramData\Sepialine\Argos7\Backup directory.

Disable automatic backups

If you already have a backup routine in place, you may not want to back up the database twice. In this case, you can disable the automatic backup in the Maintenance Service configuration.

  1. Browse to C:\Program Files\Sepialine\Argos7\Maintenance (your root directory may vary)
  2. Open MaintenanceService.exe.config in Notepad
  3. Locate this line: <add key="EnableAutoBackups" value="true"></add>
  4. Change to: <add key="EnableAutoBackups" value="false"></add>
  5. Save and close the file
  6. Click Start > Run and type "Services.msc"
  7. Select "Argos Maintenance Service" and choose "Restart"
