       To protect data, Tally Accounting Software provides Backup facility in tally by default.  As we open tally, on Gateway of Tally, on pressing Alt+F3  Backup option is available as shown in below picture.  Backup can be selected either from mouse or from typing "B" (keyword from keyboard).

In backup option, following screen will be displayed.  Source and Destination.  Source is your actual data where your tally data is available and Destination is a place where you want to copy the data.  Destination may be floppy or any computer drive.
