 +====== Backups ======
 +
 +===== Backing up =====
 +
 +  - Click on the Run Backup button
 +  - Copy the zip file onto a USB stick - perhaps to take offsite, or to transfer to another computer.
 +
 +===== Restoring on another machine =====
 +
 +Presumably the new computer doesn'​t have any existing SOFA analyses or reports you would be worried about wiping over - just an empty SOFA installation.
 +
 +  - Transfer the zip file to the Desktop of the new computer
 +  - Open the zip file and drill down until you can select the sofastats folder
 +  - Extract it to your Desktop
 +  - Copy the sofastats folder into the folder containing the sofastats folder on your new computer. There are probably 2 sofastats folders on your new computer - one under your username, and one with the actual sofastats program on it which you can ignore. The first one is the one we are interested in.
 +  - Open SOFA - you can see your copied data from the other machine?
