Hi EpiData users,

I am trying out the backup function in CHK file:

....
AFTER FILE
     BACKUP "D:/backupfolder" ENCRYPT file1 pw123 TODAY
END
...
What happens is the backup is created each time I close the "ENTER DATA"
file in the "D:/backupfolder" as file1_19OCT08.ZKY. This is good. It
replaces the previous backed-up ZKY file. I guess if I did this on another
date (tomorrow) a new file will be created file1_20OCT08.ZKY, correct?

So I would get DAILY snapshots of the data? Is there a way to specify a TIME
stamp as well?

Thanks
S
EDIT: Just writing this made me realise, why would one want a more frequent
backup? Daily is sufficient.
