My company's tape backup system has died, and I need to figoure out how to keep our accounting data safe until we can get the tape drive fixed.

I didn't set this system up, and I'm not sure which databases have to be kept.
 
Can anyone tell me if they have standard names, or alternatively, if there's a way to figure out what the names are if there isn't a standard name?
 
Thanks...

DYNAMICS is one of the databases that is created for sure. Based on your company names there will be some more databases. Keep in mind that ms dynamics creates news databases for each company.
 
 You cna keep the mdf(master data file) and ldf(log data file) if you do not have a back up file (.bak) already in place.

If you run the following SQL script it will tell you which databases are GP databases:
 
SELECT INTERID FROM DYNAMICS..SY01500
