How can I find my datafile on my Mac or PC?



Your datafile is a single file on your mac or PC. It is is usually called something like "My Property Lodge.DF1 " (each property names it, so we don't for sure what your particular one is called) and will usually be in your / BookingCenter/ folder.

You can also find where the datafile is by launching BookingCenter and going to the 'About BookingCenter' menu and the 'splash screen' that appears will have a 'Current Datafile" printed on it with a pathname to where the actual data file resides. This is your datafile and this is what you can simply 'copy' and paste anywhere to make a 'backup'.

Alternatively, you can review: http://www.bookingcenter.com/help/backup.html to read a brief overview of the Backup process online. The Backup procedure is explained in detail above as well as in the Reference Manual in Section 2, 'Configuring the Backup'.
