    Could someone please define for me the meaning of the various sections of a default archive file name? For instance, I have an archive file name of
    arc_230110204935796. What is the significance of the various sets of numbers? What is the code to decode these default file names?

    Date and time.

    23/01/10 (european method) 20:49

    not sure if the rest are hundredths and thousandths of seconds - it ensures uniqueness.

    Thanks, SIW2. That makes sense.

    Yes it has a sense, but ...

    It will have better sense if Paragon inserts the name an archive including also date, time, incremental numbers i.e. "archive disk C 09.04.2010 20:30 001" this automatically according to templates created and saved before by user.

    User templates for naming backups would save me a step each time as I routinely name mine YYYY-MM-DD

    Yes it will be very useful but Paragon for the moment does not "hear" very well thinking that is a very useful feature....
