Hi,

It appears that the ptb file created in PCAW80 is much larger than it was in PCAW70. e.g. 7.0=8mb, 8.0=47mb (Same company). What can I be doing wrong?

It almost sounds like the backup program in version 8 isn't compressing the files.

Select Help, File Statistics from the Menu Bar in Peachtree.
Look at the grand total number of kilobytes your company data is.
Is it less than 47 mb?

If it is, then the backup program is backing up something else, like custom forms. Do you have a lot of forms that have been customized? Try backing up without the forms.

If it isn't, and it is the same as 47 mb, then the backup isn't compressing the files. I would re-install the software.

If it isn't and it is larger than 47 mb, then the backup is performing as designed.
