Backing Up Your Database

Aura does do automated backups on a daily basis, but these backups are not kept offsite. Should your store be burgled or water or fire damaged, the chance of losing all your backups is very real. Modern technology has made life a little easier with regards to manual offsite backups. 

DreamSafe offers an affordable on-line backup solution. Cosoft has a deal with DreamSafe whereby any sized Aura database can be backed up daily for R245 per month plus VAT if the database is less than a Gigabyte (90% of stores). If your database is greater than this then the cost is R345 per month.
