Available Backups

The Available Backups tab displays all of the backups that have been executed for a particular projects. (You must have, of course, a project set up before you can view its elements). You will notice by the column marked "Date" that each row represents an independent, complete project. For both Normal and projects saved in a Favorites Folder, the Available Backups tab displays the saved backups that you have available to you. There are three important features available on the Available Backups tab.

When the Available Backups tab from the main program window is in the forefront, the files that have been backed up are listed. 

The program is listed by it's file name, date, time it was backed up and its size.  To view these statistics about a project, you must first highlight the project that you wish to view on the Project tab. As each backup file is selected in the list, you will notice that the comments for the backup file display to the right. The comments are automatically generated from the Notes that you type in about a project when a backup is executed. They can be edited by clicking on the Edit Comments button.

 

The Available Backups tab will display how many maximum backups you have set up for this project and how close you are to that total. Each time that you execute a backup, the most recent backup becomes number one, meaning that it is listed at the top of the tab, so that the oldest will be the deleted when you reach your maximum number of backups.

You can easily copy one of these files to a Favorites Folder by either right-clicking the mouse on the selected item, or by clicking on the 3rd button at the top of the window.

 

The files in a Favorites Folder are all listed, no matter what the files prefix is. Files from any project can be copied into a favorites folder, and they can be renamed to anything that you want. They do have to have the file extension "LSP", but that is the only requirement. "Favorites" files are never included in the cycling process like the files in a normal project backup.

Backup Details

The Backup Details tab displays all of the individual files that have been backed up for a particular project. Use the scroll bar on the bottom to view all of the statistics recorded on this tab. These are the files that are available to you should you need to restore parts of your project from an previous version or date. The Backup Details tab will display the path where the files are stored on the top, left-hand corner of the tab.

 

InBack lets you decide the way that you'd like these files to be viewed. Your options are listed in the Sort Order drop down list. If you'd like to see the files in a particular order, such as by date, but in the reverse order from most recent to oldest, simply click the Reversed check box.

 

When you right mouse click on a project you are given options to add, delete and restore files as well as the option to select and deselect all files listed. You can hold down the Control (Ctrl) key on the keyboard and click and choose several files from a list if they are not in sequence order.
