Subject backup problem
Author Nataraj S Narayanan

The Delphi /IB 4 /Bde Medical App that I am 'hacking out' for sometime, is
giving a peculiar problem.

The program makes a backup of the Medical.gdb when run for the first time
any day. It creates a text file writing the backup date in a folder
called 'Previous' under 'c:\Neethims\data' folder. I think it checks this
date stored in the text file and compares with the system date each time
when loaded. Hence backup occurs only at the change of date.

I am now using the software on a networked second machine with the Bde
alias set as 'MachineOne:c:\neethims\data\medical.gdb' . The problem is
that the backup is done in this machine too at the first time loading of
the program.
