    I don't understand your question. There is no 2017-16. If you mean the changes between 2016 and 2017 then there was no 2016. the version number moved from 2015 to 2017. The current release is 2017.7 build 1670.

    For a change log of released builds see https://infinitekind.com/blog

    Hope this helps

    Sorry

    it is good about the version 2017-7 not 2017-16
    Thanks for the address above

    Do you know if the developers are planning to remake a backup solution with an export in a new file with a date limit and deletion in the current file of the data of the same dates as it existed in old versions (very practical to go the file "in progress »)
    Best regards

    This is how backup works and as far a I know no changes are planned.

    Moneydance has two methods for making a backup.

    The default backup location can be found under HELP – SHOW ARCHIVE FOLDER. This location is on your hard drive. In both cases you can select the backup location and as such it is good practice to set the location on a cloud server such as Dropbox, in case your hard drive fails.

    Manual backup. A manual backup can be made under FILE – BACKUP EXPORT. The file naming convention is yourdatasetname-yyyymmdd-tttt.moneydancearchive

    Automatic backup is set under FILE – PREFERENCES – BACKUPS. Auto backup makes a backup every time you close Moneydance. Moneydance only keep the last auto backup of the day, overwriting any previous auto backups for that day. You can set the number of backups to be kept. When this number is exceeded the oldest backup is deleted. The file naming convention is yourdatasetname.yyyy-mm-dd.moneydancearchive

    When a backup is made, if you were syncing, the syncing method is set to don’t sync. Your password is not reset, you still need it to do a restore from backup. A moneydancearchive file is a compressed data set.

    The contents of a backup file is AES256 encrypted and provided you have set a password under FILE – PASSWORDS can only be opened by Moneydance by entering your password after using FILE – RESTORE FROM BACKUP.

    When you FILE – RESTORE FROM BACKUP you do not overwrite your existing data set, a new data set is created with the naming convention – from manual backup yourdatasetname-yyyymmdd-tttt.moneydance the date time code taken from the backup file - from auto backup yourdatasetname (plus at number) e.g. yourdatasetname 2.moneydance

    The default data set location can be found under HELP – SHOW DOCUMENT FOLDER.

    You can rename a restored data set with Moneydance closed as you would any other folder provided you retain “.moneydance” extension. A data set is a folder not a file containing other folders and files.

    When you open Moneydance it will open in the “Welcome to Moneydance” window with the data set name listed on the right.

    Hope this helps.

    Damage to the backup that "cleaned up" old data.
