Money 2001 Backup

Our joint account was slowly reaching the point where we would have to use
two floppies to back it up. About 1.25mb. Then the last time I went to back
it up is said I would need two floppies to back up 2.2 mb of info. So that
is a mb jump. I started the backup and put in the second floppy when ask. It
then filled the second ask for a third filled the third and ask for a
fourth. That is where I hit cancel. It has repeated this process every time
I try to back it up.

I'm sure if this is a glitch that MS knows about they are not going to fix
it do to the age of the product. Any ideas on what is wrong or a fix?

I'm leaning towards deleting a couple of years of checks since they go back
to 1996. That should get the info below the 1.4mb limit on the floppy.

Better would be to buy a couple USB Flash drives and backup to those
alternately. Don't assume that deleting transactions will make any
significant change in file size.

Have you got the compress option set in the backup options (if it was
available in M2001)?

Also consider backing up to a memory stick.
