New to 2019 Q for Mac. When I want to backup accounts, I put into usb my ext drive, go to File, then Save a Back up. Appears ext is receiving from flashing red light. However, when I review the ext drive, it shows a earlier date back up.Whats going on? Also, don't want to use "Automatic"

    What is the filename applied? If it is the correct date, I wouldn't worry. (The backup is actually a copy of your data file)

    I have seen strange time stamps for the file itself (not filename, but when file accessed). That has more to do with when the MacOS is accessing the database and when you quit the program.
