Sage Pastel Payroll: This article will detail the steps for creating a backup.


It is crucial that you make regular backups in your Sage Pastel Payroll System.


Ensure that you are in the company that you wish to backup and follow the steps below:

  1. Click on File, Backup.
  2. Select the directory on your computer where Payroll must save the backup:
    1. If this is the first time that you are making a backup, Payroll will default to C:\Payroll\Backups
    2. If you have a specified directory where you wish to make a backup to your Payroll will default to this chosen directory.
  3. Click on Process.
  4. Click 'yes' to test the backup.
  5. Click on close.

NOTE: Do not make backus in your company folder - this causes your system to be unnessarily slow.
