Handy Tips On Working With Offline Files...

Where are the backups of my offline file?

Whenever you save changes to your offline file, Accelerus creates a backup copy of the file in the folder where your offline file is stored. Your offline file has a windows file extension of .aof and the backup file has an extension of .bak. This backup is the most recent backup of your offline file.

In addition, we also store up to ten backups in your windows Temp folder. This folder can be accessed from the windows Start button by typing %temp% into the search cell and clicking on the Temp folder shown in the list returned. From the Temp folder, open the Accelerus folder and from this folder open the AOF Backups folder. Here you will see up to ten backups, with the highest backup number being the second most recent backup. Each time you save your offline file, the most recent backup file is moved to the %temp% folder and a new backup is created in the folder containing your offline file.
