Does MyMoney backup on exit?

Postby Nightowl » Fri May 04, 2012 1:47 pm

Hmm,

I think I must be having a senior moment...

I've set up MyMoney to backup to an SD card, but it seems my last backup (from the program) was the 19th Feb 2012.

Has something changed in how the program does it's backups?

Thanks.

It is not automatic, you need to set it in Preferences/Backup, it may have been reset if you moved between computers or upgraded your operating system

Hello again,

Well, mine doesn't seem to backup to the SD card.

In the database properties utility, it shows the last backup as being the 17 May 2012, but nothing since. I have used it today, but there is no backup for today or any other day since then.

In the General tab on the options sheet, under Miscellaneous, the Backup to Folder is correctly identified and Backup data on exit is checked.

The number of backups is 7, but I've increased this to 10, but that hasn't made any difference.

Any further help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Further to my last post, I've renamed and changed the SD card, but to no avail.

I've even changed the destination for the backup to a folder on the hard drive, but that didn't help either.

The program doesn't seem to backup on exit, at all :-(

couple of things to check:

1) MyMoney will not backup if the data isn't "dirty", i.e. if you didn't change anything no backups will be performed regardless of the locaiton

2) If you change your backup temoprarily into a HDD location, does backup go through on exit (please make a small change somewhere on MyMoney to dirty up the data)? If it does then something is incorrect with your SD card, perhaps its in not available at the time of backup, not mounted properly, there is no space, etc.

Hi there,

No, the data is definitely 'dirty' - I've added quite a few transactions and added an account.

With all the changes I've made, including the destination of the backup, the program doesn't save on exit.

Thanks

We will double check - so we are clear - did backups ever work for you?
