Manually Backup your Readings and Settings

All our software programs store readings in subfolders of your “My Documents” folder. If you have a regular backup procedure, please include this folder in the list of folders you backup.

The table below lists each program, and the name of its folder:

  • My Blood Pressure … “My BP”
  • My Weight Software … “My Weight”
  • My Blood Glucose… “My Blood Glucose”
  • My Peak Flow… “My PF”
  • My Body Temperature … “My Body Temperature”
  • My Cholesterol … “My Cholesterol”
  • My INR … “My INR”
  • My Blood Oxygen … “My Blood Oxygen”

To create a quick backup, you could follow the steps below:

  1. Shutdown the program if it is running. (Right-click on the program’s icon in your System Tray (near the Windows clock), and then click on “Shutdown (program name)”)
  2. Open the “My Documents” folder. (On most systems, you will have a “My Documents” or “Documents” folder on your desktop. Double-click on that folder to open it).
  3. Select the program’s subfolder in the list. (Single left-click)
    • For Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000: Right-click on the program’s subfolder, then click “Send To”, then click “Compressed Zipped Folder”. Windows will create a new zip file in the “My Documents” folder.
    • For Windows 98 and ME: Click on the “Edit” menu, then click on “Copy to Folder”. Choose the “My Documents” folder. Windows will copy all the files to a new folder.
