Backups are Changed

As of V2.1.7 of Simple Budget, backups are a bit different.

  • First, backups are now saved in the format like this:  CURRENT_BACKUP_20191228-181947.SB
    What does that all mean? Here is the scoop.  The format is: CURRENT_BACKUP_YYYYMMDD-hhmmss.SB where YYYY is the four digit year, MM is the two digit month, DD is the two digit day of the month, hh is the two digit hour in 24 hour time, mm is the two digit minute, and ss is the two digit second that the backup was mad.
  • Simple Budget keeps up to 10 backups at a time.  The oldest is deleted as a new one is created.
  • A backup is made every time Simple Budget saves its default data file CURRENT.SB.
  • If you open a backup file with “File” – “Open”, you can use it as usual.  When it is time to close Simple Budget, or save the file through “File – “Save”, Simple Budget will ask you if you want to restore the file as your default CURRENT.SB data file.  If you select “Yes”, your current CURRENT.SB file will be over written by the back file.  If you select “No”, no file is saved.  Your current CURRENT.SB file will remain as it was, and any changes you made to the backup file will not be saved.  The backup file will remain unchanged.

SIMPLE BUDGET BACKUPS ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM BACKUPS!  IF THERE IS A DISK FAILURE, YOUR BUDGET FILES MAY BE IN JEOPARDY.

Along with these highlights, there were numerous other small changes and bug fixes.  You can see about them on the Change Log page.
