Make a copy of your database

Estimated reading: 1 minute

It is recommended to do a backup prior to a purge or mass markup, as they cannot be reversed. The following steps will create a copy of your Cornerstone database in the IDEXX folder of the drive your Cornerstone software is installed on. Example: C:\IDEXX, D:\IDEXX, etc.

How to make a database copy

  1. Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard. This will open a run command window.
  2. Type C:\Cstone\csdbback.bat.

    Note: If your Cornerstone software is not installed on the C drive, substitute the correct letter of the drive. Example: D:\cstone
  3. Click Ok.
  4. Check C:\IDEXX (or applicable drive) to ensure the copy was successful. There will be a .db and .log file with the date and time the backup began.
