hi mat,


stop doing that.


here is a link to the manual:




start on page 46, in the section entitled, "Backup". when you have specific questions from that, come back and post them.


you are going to get going with this program a lot faster if you understand the process rather than randomly clicking around.

stop doing that.



Stop doing _what?_ How can you tell what's being done?


"When I click on 'open' to select files to backup" doesn't do much to describe a series of actions. There are lots of "open" buttons that can show up in Retrospect.


But the program shouldn't quit on its own no matter what random clicks are done.


I agree that reading the manual should be your first step. And describing what you're doing using step-by-step language is the best way to get help online.
