VolleyWrite’s Backup feature is enabled on the Welcome tab. By defining a removable location, you ensure that the software will save your match in progress in case of a catastrophic computer problem (e.g. a ball takes out the computer).
There are two things you need to know:
1. When you click on the Define button, VolleyWrite asks the computer to identify any removable media. If the media is not considered removable by the operating system (Windows), it is not listed. Some people are surprised to find that external hard drives and even some memory sticks (e.g. some SanDisk models) are not included in the list. Unfortunately, the problem is between Microsoft and the media manufacturer…
2. You do need to be careful about the access speed of the external device you use for your backup! Once the size of the match gets big enough, writing it to the memory stick can be too big of a task for slower thumb drives. If you notice a slowing in VolleyWrite’s response, the culprits are usually either a slow memory stick defined as the backup or the downloading of a Windows update.
