etc.). To include files with your backup:

-Go to the Design environment and select preferences from 4th Dimension menu (Mac) or Edit menu (PC)
-Select the Backup theme from the preferences window.
-On the right, you should be able to see the Attachments list box.
-To add a folder click on "Add Folder". To just add a file click on "Add". To remove any items on the list click on "Remove".
