Time Machine backups

26.07.2016, 18:42

Does the MAXQDA program need to be completely closed for Apple Time Machine to make a proper backup of the database underlying the data?

Version: MAXQDA 12
System: Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan)

Hello bheardave,

we cannot give a 100% guarantee for this, because we don't know the insides of Time Machine, but usually it should not be necessary to close the file in MAXQDA. For example: after MAXQDA has written new coding information in the project file it can be copied to another folder without a problem.

Hope this helps,
