There’s a saying about not sweating the small stuff, but when it comes to security, it’s often the little things that have the biggest impact.
On the “Backup” page of Database Settings, you’ll notice an option for an automatic restore of the last backup if your database is damaged. To provide you with the best level of protection for your data, this option is now checked by default for new databases, right out of the box.
Use Log File
Keep in mind that as a part of 4D’s automatic backup strategy, you can enable logs for newly created databases by selecting the Use Log File option on the General page of the 4D Preferences dialog box. The log file is named DataFileName.journal and is placed in the folder containing the database structure. For more information, take a look at the Log Management article.
