Preferences Dialog: Backup Tab


Default Backup Folder If you usually backup to the same folder, specify that folder here, so that it is always the default when you do a backup.
Prompt for Backup on Exit If checked, Family Historian will prompt you to do a backup at the end of every session.
Generate Backup File Name using Date in Year-Month- Day Order When you do a backup, Family Historian will always automatically generate a default name for the backup file, using the current date and time.

If this option is checked, Family Historian will format the date with year first, then month, then day. The advantage of doing it this way is that if you sort the folder containing the backup files, by name, the files will be in the correct chronological order.

If this option is not checked, Family Historian will format the date with day first, then month, then year.
