There is a way to do it - it's not just with the click of a button though. If you look in the OE help, it tells you exactly how to do it. Basically, you have to go into your computer under the My Documents folder (depending on your OS) and backup the DBX files - which are your OE folders and settings files. Click Help in your OE menu bar and search for "backup" that will tell you exactly how to do it.

I'd give you exact directions, but different versions may have different methods. Let us know if you have trouble.

Good luck!

I can't tell you hoew to do it - but I can tell you that you need to do it if there is anything critical in there. I had become complacent and not backed anything up at all this year. Last week my hard drive crashed (computer only two years old). I lost EVERYTHING!
