    Are you wanting to change the file's base name or just the name of the backups?
    If you have Q append the date to the filename when creating a backup, after 12/31/2021, 2022 will be in the date.
    If you wan to change the name of the data file, change it in Windows Explorer (with Q closed), then double-click on the renamed file to open it in Q and update the recent file list on the File menu.
