How do you save backup files, so they save at different times and multiple levels?


1) In the CONNECT Edition software go to Tools > Options (the arrow in the lower right corner of the tools section. See screen shot below) or use the Search bar. In the V8i versions go to Tools > Options.


2) Set the backup levels to something other than the default level, which is 1, and click the "Ok" button.

With each backup level added a new copy of the project will be saved every time the model file is saved.

Saving backup files results in multiple copies of the model file being saved in case the original model files become corrupt or misplaced.
