    Default back-up and/or zipping files

    I would like to know how to zip or back up JUST the data files, I want to copy just the data records at the end of each month for accounting purposes but don't want to have all the problems I'm getting when I zip and unzip the whole database . Is there an easy way of doing this? Could I create a script?. I have just spent ages duplicating sets to another computer and don't want to risk restoring the database and losing all the work I've just done.

    I am no expert in this issue,
    are you using native dbf?
    isn't there something like when you back up you can specify data files only or application files only etc.,?
    thanks for reading
