: : : Mark: I had an unfortunate encounter with a virus which required me to restore the computer back to the factory load condition. Subsequently, I reloaded Fund Manager and tried to use backup diskettes to refill a bare bones Fund Manager installation to get back up to speed again.

: : : I ran into two problems. First, the portfolio names and descriptions are not stored in the backup diskettes to reestablish the portfolios and therefore it remains quite a chore to achieve a preliminary condition where a backup diskette can be effectively used. Second, after the backup is achieved, there is a short period of dates following the backup date to the current date for which quotes are missing. How do I fill in these gaps in the quotes?

: : Hi Chuck,
: : The backup feature doesn't back up portfolio files, just your investment
: : files... This is something we should add. You can back up these files
: : yourself though if you'd like, by just copying them to a backup location.

: : Regarding getting missing prices, you may be able to get them from one
: : of the historical quote servers, like "Yahoo (Historical)".

: : Thanks,
: : Mark
