Secure Database Backups

Shepherd's Staff WebTools - Attendance

We now offer the option to upload a backup of your database to the secure servers at CTS.

  • All backups are encryped, and a copy is also saved to your PC.
  • For the first 30 days, your last backup of each day will be kept. After that, CTS will keep your last backup of each month.
  • Each monthly backup will be kept for 90 days throughout the duration of your active support plan.

You can contact CTS during normal business hours to obtain a copy of your backup in the event of a disaster. We should be able to process your request within one business day.

This feature is only available to customers who have registered their database with CTS and have an active support plan.
