John, I do think this could be a problem for people and wonder, like you, how it's going to work. I try to backup but not as often as I should and, you're right, changing one label means your backup won't be up to date. I wonder if anyone has changed the batteries yet and whether this also will cause us to lose memory of labels recorded? I wonder if someone from RNIB could confirm whether or not the memory chip is safe for some time after batteries go down? -- Carol carol.pearson29@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Be friends with me on Facebook (Not using Twitter these days ...) ---- Original Message ---- From: john coley To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, October 14, 2010 12:29 PM Subject: [access-uk] Penfriend backup > Hi everybody, as I said in a previous post I bought a > Penfriend a few days ago.
