  • When I try to backup the latest version of Money I get a message saying that I am using the wrong Path.  Never gotten this before and haven't a clue as to what to do.  Can someone out there point me in the right direction....please

  • After you open your Money file, change the location to which Money
    backs up to a location that exists on the new computer -- typically
    your Documents folder or a sub-folder in Documents. To do that Browse to the folder.

    In M+: 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 a CDR or other media.
