Where is the data directory for Bankruptcy Pro?

Hi, there! I want to back up client data for Bankruptcy Pro, either on a thumb drive or on the server. (1) Does Bankruptcy Pro have automated backups? (2) If not, can I use a 3rd-party program to back up the data directory and then restore from there in case of corruption or new installation? I want the data backed up daily, not just when it occurs to me to back it up.
Please let me know! Thanks.
