What is best way to backup testcomplete project

Our IT team has asked us what is the recommended approach to Data recovery for test complete.

We have VM server on which testcomplete is installed and projects are stored. If the VM goes down, what is the best way to restore data and what files needs to be backed up?

As for the actual automation projects... use source control.  GIT, Mercurial, SVN, TFS, etc...  it's generally best practice to use source control, anyways, so if you ever need to revert code to a previous version you can do so.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Easiest way is to back up the installer and the project.  Reinstall on a new machine that can see the license server and copy in the project and you're done.

 

Best to keep the installer that you last used around because getting the download from TC might result in a getting a new version and you'd have to go through converting the files, etc.
