Backing up or archiving projects - Juniper Aspect

7 Jan 2013

In Juniper Aspect, it’s not a bad idea to occasionally back-up or archive your map projects. You may also want to move these projects or transfer them as well. Here are the instructions on how to access the folder where the projects are located.

First thing is to find your project. If you’re using Windows XP, go here:

My Computer > C drive > Documents and Settings > All Users > Documents > Juniper Aspect

If you’re using Windows Vista or Windows 7, go here:

Computer > C drive > Users > Public > Documents > Juniper Aspect

In this folder is where you will find all of your projects and Catalogs. The Catalogs will be in a folder called Catalogs and your projects will each have an individual folder that is represented by a Globally Unique Identifier (GUID). The only way to know which project is the one you are wanting to back-up / archive is to look inside each folder. Here is where you will find the name of your project.

From here, it is up to you on what you need to do. If you wanted to back-up / archive all of your projects and catalogs, you can make a copy of all of the contents inside this folder and paste it somewhere else. If you wanted to transfer or send one of your projects, the best way is to first find the project you need, and then zip up (compress) the entire folder. An easy way to zip up the project is to right click on the GUID-named folder, go to "Send to" and then "Compressed (zipped) folder".
