Hi Al,
Long time no chat! Have you tried changing the location to save your backup files to? I think in eCabinets click File > Back up restore settings and change the location in there...

Hmm that's odd. When your locating the G:/ through the back up restore settings, can it be located or are you manually typing in the location?
When you back it up to a folder on your hard drive, how big is the file? Just wondering if the file might be too big for your pen drive?
Have you tried backing it up to your hard drive then copy and pasting to the pen drive?

Yeah, seeing that your posts are coming in at times like 4:30am, midnight and 1:00am, I WAS asleep. :D

Take a look at the file c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\thermwood\ecabinet systems\backup_errors.txt and see what it says. That should have the specific error that you encountered.

Hey, how come the kiwis only have two points like the US? I thought you guys were into soccer (football) more than here. :joker:

Did you ever look at the error file to see what was happening?

Cool! Looks like it would've told you it was out of space or something.
