The data files are now managed through Tally.Server 9. The physical location or path for the data on the server is not required to be made known or accessible to any user. The clients just require the name of the data server, which will be enough to access and operate Tally.ERP 9. Furthermore, operations for company data management like backup, restore etc. are also controlled with server level permissions. This will ensure that data managed by Tally.Server 9 is only available with necessary authorization.
