You will need to zip the MS Access Based Globodox DB to take its backup.

You will need to take a backup of...

For each Globodox DB, you must also backup it's linked folder which contains the System Folder and the documents and their cache files, by zipping it.

All the above files and folders are usually located in the 'C:\Globodox Databases' folder
