The next version of NV2 (2.09) I’m told will have a backup menu choice from the NewViews 2.0 windows menu.
There is a possibility. End tasking NV2 leaves a files called database.recovery.hdr and database.recovery.0 which are used for recovering the databases. If these files are erased or not written to the disk then recovering the application database can be very difficult if sent to us for review.
Always exit NV2 properly either by using File > Exit NewViews or ALT + X.
