[GNC] My bad

Tony Vanson
Hi all,
On 29/06/2018 I backed up my GNU file.
I did some editing, entering additional transactions and reconciliations on
the 30th, and today, without realizing that GNUcash had opened up my backup
file instead.
Is it possible to rename the now up-to-date backup file to the normal file
I use, if so must it's log file also be renamed or can I open the backup
file and do a "save as", specifying the normal file name, without screwing
up anything.
Thanks once again for any advice.

The easiest way is to open the backup file and Save As the original
file as you have suggested.  You could rename it instead but then you
would have to use File Open to open it (as GC defaults to opening the
last file used as you noticed).  Log files are not used by the system
after they are created so the names don't matter.  I tend not to use
Save As for backups for precisely the reason you have found, but have
the backup of the accounts as part of the general backup strategy for
the whole machine.
