I've backed up money to a USB drive for years without problems.
This USB drive is 16Gb big so has plenty of space.

I've always ignored the 'Estimated bytes need for backup file:1619550
bytes, which is about 2 floppy disks' message

Today (even on a restored partition) the backup is saying it
requires 2 disks and indeed asking for a 2nd disk even though the
USB drive is nearly empty, clicking 'OK' finishes the backup. Also
writes 2 files backup.1 & backup2.

I've never had this message before and don't want it now.
Is there a way to fool Money that the disk has huge capacity asnd is
not a floppy? Many thanks for any assistance.

Add enough files to leave less than 2 GB of free space on the USB
drive.

Check to see if your backup options have changed.

Strange but it worked, thank you.
