: : Dear Mark,

: : How can I back up my investment properties, such as asset goal and investment type? I recently did a reformat of my hard drive and when I installed Fund Manager 4.7, and opened my backup of the investment files, all the settings for 300 securities were lost. Does File-Backup... do the trick?

: : Clarke

: Hi Clarke,
: Your investment properties are memorized with the investment file itself
: (*.dat). This means which goal/type and the percentages. The category
: labels themselves are stored in the registry. These are FM wide settings.

: If you use "regedit" and go to the registry you will see:

: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Beiley Software\Fund Manager\CurrentVersion\Investment Goal Labels

: and

: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Beiley Software\Fund Manager\CurrentVersion\Asset Type Labels

: This is where the names you've customized under "Options/Category Labels"
: are stored. You can either use this dialog to re-enter the names you
: want, or if you have your old registry you can replace the values in
: the above mentioned registry slots.

: Thanks,
: Mark

Well I looked for those two things in the registry but they were not there. Is that because I reinstalled the program after setting up a new hard drive?

So am I correct in understanding that I must somehow backup the Beiley registry to save all my settings? How do you do this?

It would be a great feature if Fund Manager had a backup/restore option that could easily backup and restore everything. I often reformat or get a bigger HD, and it would make me a lot more comfortable with the program if this feature was included.
