How to Email Your Time Clock MTS Database

At some stage it may become necessary to email us your Time Clock MTS database. This might be to reset a forgotten administrator password or to help us get to the bottom of some sort of problem. This is a pretty simple task but it is worth providing some simple instructions leading you through the process.

1. Locate the database

By default this file is called timeclock.mdb and is found in different locations depending on what version of Windows you are using. If you are using Windows 10 / 8 / 8.1 / 7 you will find it in c:\Program Data\Time Clock MTS\Database. If you are using Windows XP or earlier then you will find the file in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Time Clock MTS\Database. Note that if you have moved the database because you are using the Network Edition of Time Clock MTS or for some other reason then the file will not be found here, and you or your system administrator should know where the file is.

2. If You Cannot Find the Location

If you cannot find either of these locations using Windows Explorer then you most likely need show hidden files and folders.
