    I assume you are taking about automatic backups set under PREFERENCES BACKUPS?

    You could try changing the backup location to your hard drive, closed Moneydance and see if a backup was created. Open Moneydance change the backup location to your external hard drive, close Moneydance and see if a backup is now created correctly.

    Hope this helps.

    Derek, thanks. Yes, I am talking about auto backups. I suppose I should have added if I change the location to what it was (select the same little external drive), close MD, it backs up. However the next day, back to same problem. If I export Backup, it works. Don’t know if you’re a Mac user, but the permissions change/bug with macOS 10.15 is driving me crazy. I have a sneaky feeling that is what’s changing MD backup.

    No, sorry, I am a Windows user so don't have these problems.

    Sorry I can't help.
