New to the site; thanks in advance for any help! I run a small business(5 work stations + a server). I should say, I've only recently began running this company, and the way the whole network is set up, and the accounting software in general is not my style, so I'm trying to get the network running smoothly, but i only have a limited knowledge base to work with.
We use Sage 50 Accounting Software, and store all data for the program on the server. Well, it's actually a PC that our old IT company pressed into a server type use. Ok, so recently we've been having problems with loading anything that's stored on the server. Sage Accounting is claiming that this is being caused by us storing too much data for their program to work properly, and that we need to buy their $1500/yr upgrade in order to use the amount of data we require. This made absolutely no sense to me.
First of all, our server is old, so we will be upgrading to an actual SERVER with far more storage, memory etc....
But, my question is this: are there programs out there that actually limit the amount of data that your hard drive can store? Or are there programs that actually operate slower when they detect a certain amount of data being stored?
My instinct is that Sage is straight up lying, and that we need a server upgrade not new software... but I've seen some weird stuff so maybe they're not lying.
