E-Mail Backup

The Pimero Client does not synchronize e-mails with the Pimero Server. These are managed exclusively by the Pimero Client and are therefore not part of the automatic Pimero backup, so you have to save them manually. Please include the complete “Email” directory in your Pimero Client data directory in your existing backup solution.

Windows Vista or newer

C:\Users\WINDOWS_USER\AppData\Roaming\soft-evolution\Pimero

Please note that the directory C:\Users\WINDOWS_USER\AppData is hidden by Windows by default. You can change this in Windows Explorer in the menu “Organize” -> “Folder Options”. In the View tab, check the box “Show hidden files and folders”.

Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\WINDOWS_USER\Program Files\soft-evolution\Pimero\

Please note that the directory C:\Documents and Settings is hidden by Windows by default. You can change this in Windows Explorer in the “Folder Options” menu. In the View tab, check the box “Show hidden files and folders”.

check the box for “Create periodic backups”.

Please specify a target directory and a time interval for your backups. A new backup will be created as soon as the interval has expired.

The number of generations determines how many backups are created before the oldest backup is overwritten with a new one. In this example (24 generations, every 60 minutes), Pimero will create hourly backups for an entire day. If you want to recover data from a problem that occurred a long time ago, you should increase these numbers.

Please note that client backups are only created while the Pimero Client is running.

Please also note that the backup function only backs up your database. This includes appointments, tasks, notes and contacts, but no emails or settings.

Pimero Server Backup

From the Windows Start menu, open “Start” -> “All Programs” -> “Pimero” -> “Server Administrator”. Then enter the administrator password that you specified during the installation.

Here you can check the box for “Write periodic backups”.

Please specify a target directory and a time interval for your backups. A new backup will be created as soon as the interval has expired.

The number of generations determines how many backups are created before the oldest backup is overwritten with a new one. In this example (50 generations, every 120 minutes), Pimero will create two-hour backups for approximately 4 days. If you want to recover data from a problem that occurred a long time ago, you should increase these numbers.
