Created on  | Last modified on 


This guide explains how to use the Backup Manager in Sage 50cloud Accounts to schedule check data and backups to run automatically. A great time saver with added peace of mind.


The Backup Manager in Sage 50cloud Accounts makes managing your check data and backups simple. You can schedule these to run automatically even if you don't have your software open, and you can still work while your checks and backups are running. This means you don't need to worry about them. 


  1. Log in to Sage Accounts with the manager logon name and password.
  2. Click File, click Schedule back up then click the Settings tab.
  3. Enter your backup schedule settings as required.

  4. To save the backup schedule, click Save.

Once you've set up your schedule, you can manage your backups and check data results all in one place. 

If you ever want to turn off scheduled check data or backups, simply click File then click Scheduled back up and click Settings and clear the check boxes as required.

NOTE: The scheduled backups are created on the computer where your data is held, so this computer should be left on for scheduled backups to work.
