Maybe auto-back up as .csv?
« on: July 17, 2020, 12:29 PM »
Hi Mouser.    Today was the first time that I actually tried to restore from a backup.  I had a big script project before I upgraded my laptop with an SSD.  I forgot to save the script file, but I thought it might be in my CHS database.  I tried to import from the CHS backups that I did save before wiping my hard drive.  It didn't really work (see screenshot).

Anyway, no big deal.  But I see that if I do a manual export, it gets saved as a .csv file...  Why not have that be the standard file type for periodic CHS automatic backups?   As I look in my CHS directory, I see .bkp, .bbk, .blb, .bdk, .ibk, and .idx file types, but I can't seem to do anything with them. 

Anyway -- I hope everyone is staying healthy out there!   8)

EDIT:  I just found the setting for importing a back up.   :Thmbsup:
