Thank you everyone, very helpful. I am still preparing my new pc and come across another issue with TB that I need clarification. Some years ago I had created an "Archive Folder" password protected for some very old messages that I could not delete but did not need TB access every day.
I just checked and this folder is on a different directory as my other folders. I am not really sure what will happen now and if that folder is included in the backup file? Given the size of 8.6gb I doubt that it would be part of my normal tbk file (9.5 gb). I could manually put this folder onto the external drive but while my current drive letter is E and this shows up in the config of TB for this folder, my new pc does not allow me to create a drive E, so my backup/data drive will be F. I could probably live with the archive folder now being dumped but don't want this to become an issue for my active accounts. Should I move this archive folder temporarily back to the OS-drive together with the other active folders under AppData\Roaming\The Bat!? At the moment I can still access the folder and open it within the Bat but don't know what would happen if I moved to the new pc and the TB looks for a drive that does not exist. Would it still appear in the folder structure within TB, allowing me to open it and point to the new F-drive at that point? -- Tom using TheBat! 8.8.9 on XP ________________________________________________ Current version is 8.0.18 | 'Using TBUDL' information: http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/TBUDLInfo.html
