Backup and Restore

The backup and restore of DUGIO volumes is simple, as they are write-once files.

The main project database, however, is different. Whenever Insight is running, the database file may be modified at any time without warning, even if the user is not actively using Insight at a given moment (e.g. it will autosave the current session every 5 minutes).

Therefore, the making or restoring of a backup must be done carefully, to avoid copying a file that is in the middle of a modification and is therefore not internally consistent.

This is also true of horizon files in the 120hors directory, although those files change only when the user is actively modifying the horizon.
