Backup Company

A backup company is useful when all the information about the files that follow the Life Cycle procedure needs to be preserved.

During the definition of a company, the backup company associated with it can be defined.

When the Life Cycle procedure is started on the files of a company associated with a backup company, the new file layouts will be visible within the company itself, whereas the information concerning the file with the layout considered to be obsolete may be retrieved from the backup company.

Note: Only one version for each file is stored in the backup company. Thus, if the Life Cycle causes a file to be modified twice, the backup company will only include the version before last and the version prior to that will no longer be stored.
