Tips to help you locate the correct datafile

Note: While the file extension of your actual datafile will be .4DD, you will generally also need it's accompanying files as well. As such, once you have located your datafile, be sure to include all files with the same prefix as well.

  • The datafile is usually called facilityname.4DD (where facilityname is the name of your facility.) For example: If your company is called ABC Storage Brisbane West, then your datafile will probably be called abc.4DD, abcstorage.4DD or brisbanewest.4DD.
  • Check the file's Date modified field on your computer and ensure that it is fairly recent.
