    BTW, APFS file format was introduced with macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) but only applied to SSD drives by default. Then with macOS 10.14 (Mojave), all boot drives were automatically converted to APFS format. So likely, you are using macOS 10.13 or higher.

    If it really becomes important for you to use Save A Copy (which can be useful to correct internal data file problems), you can create a Mac OS Extended format (aka HFS+) to store your QM2007 files. We can walk you through that if it becomes necessary.
