With 4D v20 R3, a new feature has been introduced to enable better journal management. This feature concerns the “Use log file” option, which can now be overridden like other backup parameters.
In this blog post, we’ll explain why this is useful and show you how to use it.
4D provides you with multiple built-in ways to backup your data: 4D backup and the use of a mirror server. With 4D v20, 4D exposes internal commands to lock the datastore, allowing you to copy your data while 4D is running.

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.
