I wish to backup to CD my Finance program,my requirements are that I must be able to run the Finance program when backed up from the CD.

Suggestions please?

What finance program are you running?

Microsoft Money has (rarely for Microsoft) an excellent backup procedure; that will save a copy of the "database" whenever you exit the program - you can then periodically copy the file to a CD for storing...

Are you not interested in backing up the whole PC?
If you were; then Acronis TrueBackup has worked wonders for us in the past:-

Can you backup to a DVD? that way you could just copy it. Otherwise I think Acronis will let you "Mount" an image and it becomes a virtual drive. Since I have never tried to run a program this way I can't be sure but you can always take Acronis as a free 30 day trial and give it a whirl.

I am using Quicken.

I have used Acronis but all I want is a little backup program that can backup Quicken to a CD and then run Quicken from the CD.
Acronis is a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
Suggestions please for a small program.
