I save my regular data to a flash drive called #1.
I have the backup saving to a flash drive called #2 every time I save or quit.
In preferences, I have my backup set to backup every 2 minutes, and when I quit. When I save or quit Moneydance, both flash drives blink their LED's but when I look for the back up file on flash drive #2, nothing is there! What am I not doing?

    Hi n8juq

    I have noticed a problem with the "Make a backup every time I save" option on some linux systems, are you running linux?. Either way select the "Make Daily Backups" instead and that should give you a dated backup file in the target folder. The "perform autosave every 2 mins" will create a copy of your data file ending with a ^ in the same directory as the data file.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    Yes, I use Linux exclusively.
    Your suggestion worked, Thanks.
