Are you using "save a copy as" to make the back up copy?
Yes, still working locally until full deployment and some of the work I've been doing could cause a lot of chaos if it went wrong, hence the frequency of backups using this method.
If this is large file that you are backing up, it may just be that you have to wait for the save to complete. This is pure speculation on my part...
Thank you for your posts.
I am on the same page as "PhilModJunk". How large is the file being saved? How many records in the file for all tables? Do you notice if any menu commands are available? If so, do any of the menu commands work?
