Keith,

I would suggest that you make a folder on your hard drive. Then put your backup files there. Name the files NYYMMDDl.sqz N for project name, YY Year, MM Month, DD Day and l for the letter of the day. S000304a.sqz is one I used today. I save a number of these then delete the older ones. This way you have a number of backups to go back to if your data is found to be bad at some point after you have printed a report or list. Also this permits more backups so you would not have to lose much data if for some reason the program freezes or something.

I back up to a zip drive once a day.
