About Backing Up Actuate Report Design and Library Files
You must create a set of development directories for report source files—particularly report design files and library files—to make sure that older versions are not overwritten. Ideally, you want to employ source code control software for this purpose. When modifications are made repeatedly to a single set of source files in one location, possibly by multiple developers, you risk the loss of report design and development effort. A system for backing up source files and retaining earlier versions significantly reduces this risk.
