Use "Pack and Go" for backups

Although the "Pack and Go" tool was designed to transfer DM data from one computer to another, it can also be used as a quick and easy backup tool. In fact, it's probably faster and easier than the Donor Manager's "Full Backup."

It makes a single, compressed (usually gets 70% compression) file with all of your Donor Manager data files.

Whenever I make major updates to my DM data, I'll do make a "Pack and Go" file, and e-mail it as an attachment to my gmail account so I'll also have an online databackup.

For those who need to keep multiple data sets on one computer, this can also be used for that as well.
