Be certain you backup up your ultrasound system at least twice annually. This includes a soft backup (MO disk, CD, DVD, USB stick) and a hard copy of the system license option files and network information. Some of this data may not be saved with an electronic backup. If you have questions about the procedure for a certain make and model, please reference the service manual or contact us for assistance. The adage; “A penny saved is worth an ounce of prevention” is no more appropriate than in this case. Backup, backup, and then backup again!
