Thanks Dennis,

I did not know that.

I usually have had to do a "recover" after a crash from the "backup" or the
"previous backup" in the same directory as the original ".ddb" file, and in
fact I have had to do that at least twice in the last week with this board,
which is probably why I am in "paranoid mode" to begin with.

I will look into that, because that would mean a great deal of "time saved"
in some instances, if I did not have to go all of the way back to a previous
"backup" to recover the database.

Thanks again,

JaMi
