I have a client with a business management app that uses Advantage Database 10 and was hoping to find a way to guarantee maximum availability of the data.  Does anyone use a snapshot tool or a mirroring utility on Advantage DB 10.1?  The database that I would be working with is approximately 4GB.  thanks for any advice.

While I have not used it with Advantage, I have used Vision's Double-Take with the Pervasive PSQL database, which is very similar in design to Advantage.  Essentially, there is a low-level data storage engine that handles all of the data management, and with Double-Take, you can configure the system to replicate ALL data changes to the target server.  it works properly because it replicates data changes in the exact order they are written to the source server, maintaining a crash-consistent data copy on the target at all times.
