Sage 50 Manufacturing 2013 SP3 is only for use with Sage 50 Accounts 2015.
The process for backing up data has changed in Sage Accounts 2015. This affects you if you also use Sage 50 Manufacturing.
In previous versions of Sage Accounts, data for Sage 50 Accounts and Sage 50 Manufacturing was backed up within Sage 50 Manufacturing.
If you use Sage 50 Accounts 2015 or later, you backup data for Sage 50 Accounts within Sage 50 Accounts and data for Sage 50 Manufacturing within Sage 50 Manufacturing. You must backup both applications at the same time. We recommend that you store both backups together.
Please refer to the Sage 50 Accounts 2015 help for details on the Sage 50 Accounts backup manager and the Sage 50 Manufacturing help for details on backing up and restoring within Sage 50 Manufacturing.
