jP STORAGE REQUIREMENTS

RAM

juniorPartner usually occupies less 10-12 Mb Ram on each computer. Because juniorPartner can operate in a multi-user, multi-operating systeme networking environment it is important to ensure that each computer has uninterrupted access to the juniorParner datafile. Therefore there are certain steps that must be taken to alter default operating system settings at the time of installation. These and other ways to ensure against data loss are described in the Getting Started Manual despatched with your order.

Write-Behind Caching & Data Loss

"Data loss on network drives is a major headache for most administrators at one time or another. Windows 95/98 uses a write-behind caching scheme to improve workstation performance. This same feature can actually cause data loss, especially with networked database managers. If you find you have records that don't get written or other forms of data loss, you might want to check this box. Even though checking this box will most certainly reduce local workstation performance, it might improve overall network performance by forcing the workstation to write shared data faster."
