EVP XL backup file ?

Hi Lars,

In EVP 3.1 we had the possibility to create a backup file, which was very important in case of an FS reinstallation.
Yet, I don't see such an option in EVP XL. Am I missing something or this doesn't exist in EVP XL ?

Sorry, I lost the post notification message somewhere in my not so tidy email inbox :(

To make a backup, simply copy this file:

I do have backup functionality on my to-do list, but I was never really happy with the way it worked in EVP 3.1 - I would prefer to automatically copy the file to a location where it is backed up by the users "normal" backup procedure (so maybe My Documents, Google Drive, OneDrive, or something like that).

But that would of course require the users actually have a backup procedure in the first place. :)

Just for feedback, I used the 3.1 backup function many times in the past during FS9 reinstallations with no problems at all.
