Tomedo Cloud-Backup

Save and synchronize your Tomedo backups with the luckycloud solution.

For Tomedo users, luckycloud also offers a secure cloud storage solution. The following article explains how to synchronize your backups with luckycloud.

Explanation of the Tomedo backup tab.

This tab is used to create and import backups.


The following controls support you in this process:

  1. backup directory - This is where the tomedo® backups are stored. Each backup consists of four components: The database, the tomedo® client and the tomedo® server are stored in a folder named after the timestamp of creation. The attachments are saved in the folder "files".

  2. copy backup to hard disks - If this option is selected, the entire backup directory is also copied to up to two additional hard disks. This can be used to implement various backup plans, e.g. to implement an external backup.

  3. automatic eject - if one of the disks is a removable disk, it will be safely ejected after copying the backup.

  4. copy current backup only - if this option is selected, only the backup of the most recent database and doctor's reports, scans, ultrasound images, etc. will be copied to the removable disk. This option will only backup what is absolutely necessary to back up your patient data. Older database backups that are important for restoring patient data in various failure scenarios will not be backed up. If this option is not selected, the local backup directory will be fully synchronized with the removable disk (recommended procedure).

  5. encrypt backup with password - if this option is selected, the backup will be stored encrypted on the removable disk. This option will be available only in a future version!

  6. drives - here you can specify the drives for the additional backup. In case of network drives or removable media, the system will try to mount them automatically.

  7. create backup - this creates a current backup. The tomedo® server does not have to be stopped for this and you can work normally.

  8. backup log - logs the process of creating or importing a backup.

  9. source - here you can select a source for importing backups.

  10. select backup - here you can select the backup you want to import. Once you have made your choice, the paths to the four backup components will be filled in automatically, if any.

  11. delete newer attachments - if selected, attachments newer than the selected backup will be deleted.

  12. insert backup - inserts a selected backup. The database administrator's password is required for this. Important: when importing a backup, all data created after the selected backup was created will be removed from the database!


Auto-Backup tab

This tab is used to configure the automatic backup. The following controls will help you to do this:

  1. create backups by yourself - if this option is selected, the backups will be created automatically. We strongly recommend that you enable this option.

  2. delete backups automatically - if selected, old backups will be deleted automatically. We follow the KBV recommendations for 3-generation backups, i.e. at least one backup per month, at least one backup per week for the last four weeks and at least one backup per day for the last seven days. In addition, the last 20 backups are usually kept.

  3. interval - specifies the interval at which automatic backups should be performed. 4. start time - specifies the start time for automatic backups. For example, if you select 01:00 as the start time and 6h as the interval, a backup will be performed every day at 1:00, 7:00, 13:00 and 19:00.

  4. backup list - here you can choose whether the saved backups should be displayed in the local backup directory or on an external disk.

  5. Cleanup backups - starts the cleanup operations in the selected directory. A three-generation principle is applied here as well.

  6. saved backups - displays a list of all saved backups.
