Closing MS Money without saving RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can this be done somehow?

    I know I could just go to previously saved backup, but that is not really as easy as simply clicking no at a prompt to save like other Microsoft programs do

  • I have mine set up that way.

    In Money 2006 and later: Tools->Settings->BackupSettings
    I suggest checking
     x Automatically backup my Money file every time I close Money
      Save in [a place on your hard drive ]. It is best to Browse to
         a location rather than typing the path.
       x Ask me before backing up each time*
       x Compress Backup Files
       Keep only the _20_most recent backup files [adjust to taste]

     x Perform scheduled backups every _28_ days
      Save in [a USB flash drive location]
       x Ask me before backing up each time*
       x Compress Backup Files
       Keep only the _2_most recent backup files [adjust to taste]

    Then periodically, perhaps each month or three, copy your latest
    backup (uniquely named by Money) to other media.

    * The reason I have Money ask me, is that I don't want to back up
    each time I exit.  If I went into Money 5 times in a day, I would
    not want to back up 5 times, nor would I want to delete 5 other
    backup files.  You will be given the choice to BackUpNow or to Postpone.

    For older versions, you have the ask choices but the path is  Tools->Options->Backup or Tools->Settings->BackupOptions
