How to backup ACT! databases

ACT! typically installs its databases in a dedicated SQL instance with credentials only known to Sage.  If you have a support agreement in place and are prepared to sign a disclaimer, Sage "should" let you have those credentials. 

Alternatively, use ACT!'s built in scheduler to create backup jobs and backup the resulting files using a "File" backup set.  If you can get the "sa" credentials, you may create and use a Microsoft SQL backup set to backup the database.
