Explanatory Notes

    This is a utility for backing up all types of files and folders. In case of a folder, all the subfolders and files contained therein also get backed up.

    Multiple profiles can be created, suiting varying backup needs. These profiles can group the available files / folders into any manner as desired e.g. importance, periodicity of backup, relevance to a particular project etc. For a given file or folder, there is no limit to the number of different profiles in which it can be included.

    If the selection happens to include any Access database files, compaction  gets carried out simultaneously, depending upon user's choice. Compaction is performed on a temporary copy of the file, eliminating the scope for any adverse effect on  the original file.

    Multiple Files can be selected at a time for insertion as source files. Paths for destination files and folders are assigned automatically, using the drive farthest removed from the source one (Destination paths can be modified by user if desired).

    BackUp copies get date time stamped as well, depending upon user's choice.

    In XP version, FileDialog object is used for activating Files & Folder Picker dialog boxes, while in 2K version, API calls are used. (Both versions are in Access 2000 File Format)

    It is recommended that the additional notes for user, as given below, are carefully gone through, before commencing use of main program.

    10 - If Only Source Directory Is Entered (i.e. Source File Is Blank), The Source Folder (Including All It's SubFolders And Files) Will Get Copied To The Destn Folder - The Destn Folder Will Get Date Time Stamped (If appropriate option button is in selected state)
    11 - Files/Folders Freshly Added In Current Session Are HighLighted In Maroon Color.

In the profile editor, select the desired file / folder in the datasheet at left and enter the desired profile string in the datasheet at right. A given file or folder can be included in as many different profiles as desired.
    15 - Any Access Database File If Selected For BackUp Gets Compacted As Well (If so desired by user). Compaction is performed on a temporary copy of the file, eliminating the scope for any adverse effect on  the original file.

    Note: Occasionally, on the first run, if the check boxes have been selected indirectly (by double click in Last_BkUp column), a message "Data was changed" might appear instead of copy action. Simply try again - it will be OK.
