Nova T6 can be scheduled to take automatic backups at specified intervals eg. every 5 minutes or every 30 minutes.
To change the frequency of the automatic backup in Nova-T6 go to Tools>Auto Save Options
With Auto Save Options set as shown above:- A SPB backup file prefixed with $ will be taken every 30 minutes and will be replace after 5 backups have been made.
A SPB backup file prefixed % will be taken every 3 minutes and will be replaced after 5 backups have been made.
A backup can be forced by a user from Data>Force backup
These backups will be saved in the same folder in which the current SPL is held. The User will need full access rights to this folder.
