Database Backup Always keep a backup ready !

Once you have completed entering all the metadata, bookmarking your comic books, adjusting the colors, rating them, making lists, you wouldn’t want all the effort go in vain just because of an accidental deletion, a virus attack, or a software or hardware failure. ComicRack™ provides for a quick and easy back up of your comic book database. It is a simple file copy of the ComicRack™ database (ComicDB.xml) file, available for storage in a separate location from the original. The database backup options can be accessed through the Preferences dialog: Edit → Preferences → Advanced → Database Backup
