    Larry,

    What additional features does this plugin provide over BLBackup (also in the updater) which is free?

            Below is the error message in the startup of Homeseer. Also I am unable to change the directory where the backup ends. Whatever I input in the directory folder the backup always ends up in C:\ (root).

              I am unable to reproduce your error. Do you have write permissions in the destination directory? The default is C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\HomeSeerBkups which is the typical path to the logged in user. You can also modify the ini file to point to the directory you want, or change the directory using the Setup menu for the plugin.
