Minimum requirements recommended to use Nex

See the minimum and recommended requirements for using Nex in your store.

Nex is an extremely lightweight system, compatible with most computers present in stores, however we have some recommended requirements for the program to work perfectly. Are they:

3.4 gigahertz (GHz) or higher 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor.

• 4 GB of RAM.

• 10 GB available disk space (HD) - you may need more space depending on the size of your database.

Windows 10 or higher.

  • It is not recommended to use Operating Systems in testing periods (beta) or discontinued, as they may present errors and affect the functioning of Nex. Furthermore, such systems do not have all security protocols updated.
  • We cannot guarantee the proper functioning of Nex for Windows XP, Windows Server or Windows 7, as these Operating Systems have been discontinued by Microsoft itself and no longer receive support or updates.

• Can I use a cloud system to store my data?

Nex on your computer works with a local database, that is, the system data is saved on your computer, so the database cannot be in the cloud, as this use can cause serious damage to the system due to immediate double synchronization, both through the cloud system (Dropbox, Drive, etc.) and through the server itself.

You can use your cloud system to save your backups. A backup is a compressed copy of your data, making it completely safe to save in the cloud. It is important that this copy is carried out regularly, ensuring that the most recent information is saved, in case something unforeseen happens to the computer on which Nex is installed. To save the backup to the cloud, select your cloud folder as the destination folder on your NexServ when performing a backup.  Click here to learn more about backups.
