A backup of your databases and files prior to renaming an account can be a good idea. This can be helpful in the event of problems with the system or data corruption.
The first step to create backups of files and databases before creating an account is to choose the location of the files. You can select the same directory in which the original files are stored or choose a different location. Make sure that the directory names do not contain special symbols, like “.” or “..” This can cause the backup file to fail if it’s too long.
The next step is to verify that the file’s name is correct. The name of the file can be changed but will not alter its contents. However it will not be listed in the list of backup files. It is recommended that the backup file be deleted if the file is an altered version of the original. This can be done by running the command ALTER DATABASE and entering the new name into the appropriate fields.
