Saving and backing up your data
Current memory data (see page 39) is lost when you turn off the
power to the instrument. Save the data to a ﬂoppy disk/the User
Drive (see page 39).
Saved data may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect opera-
tion. Save important data to a ﬂoppy disk.
When you change settings in a display page and then exit
from that page, System Setup data (listed in the Parameter
Chart of the separate Data List booklet) is automatically
stored. However, this edited data is lost if you turn off the
power without properly exiting from the relevant display.
Backing up the ﬂoppy disk
To protect against data loss through media damage, we recom-
mend that you save your important data onto two ﬂoppy disks.
