Preparing to Move VETtrak
To move VETtrak to another computer you will firstly need to know where the database sits. To do this:

You will need to make sure that there are no users in VETtrak. You can then copy the entire VETrak folder and the VETtrak database file (.gdb) from the old computer and place this onto the new computer.
