If you have a backup system already in place on the server it's always a good idea to include the EW data in the regular backup.
To do this you can include in your regular backup either:
- the location where you place your regular EW backups if you are performing scheduled EW backups. This is by default C:\ewbackups.
- the location of the actual (live) database. This is a subfolder of the Program Files installation path of the MS SQL Server 2008 Express instance that came with the EW Server installation. This path looks something like C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.50.EARWORKS\MSSQL\Data and it should contain two files called EarWorks.mdf and EarWorks.ldf.
