When developing a database application for distribution, such as a merged application without a data file, an added benefit would be to feature custom backup preferences in the application. The custom backup preferences could accompany the application at distribution, be configured with initial launch, or accommodate the preservation of existing backup preferences. This Technical Note shows how to create or configure a custom Backup.XML preference file or preserve an existing Backup.XML file for use with distributed applications independent of the native 4D Backup Preferences dialog.
