 Yeah.  Actually the HDD I have is more than sufficient.  I was
thinking about the backup which I take on a CD-RW.  As of right now I
have the thing fitting in 165MB (database, depot and all) so it is a
long way to filling the CD and by the time there will be better DVD's
or other technology.

Okay, I get the point.  Maybe the version 2007.3 will do this at the
snap of the finger <g>.

Thanks for your response.
