Back up the source Alloy Discovery 6/7 database page
On this page you make a backup copy of your existing source database before starting the migration process.
NOTE: If you chose to upgrade the production database on the Choose the migration mode page, your existing source database will be taken offline, renamed, then the new Alloy Discovery 8 database will take the name of your original database. The renamed copy will serve as a backup of your existing system.
Click the ellipsis button to open the Select File Location window. Browse the computer hosting Microsoft SQL Server to choose the location and name of the file that the database will be backed up to, and then click OK.
