To make a complete backup of the TaxSlayer Pro program, the entire TaxSlayer Pro folder should be copied to a secondary storage device such as a flash drive or external hard drive. Everything in the TaxSlayer Pro folder is backed up, including all program years along with their associated returns and attached images and PDFs. Thus, this backup could take some time to complete and it's not typically run during the middle of the workday.
If you are using TaxSlayer Pro in a networked environment, this backup must be run on the computer designated as the File Server. Running it on a Workstation computer will save program files but not return data since the returns are stored on the File Server.
From the Main Menu of TaxSlayer Pro select 8. Utilities
Select Program Backup Utility
