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?

Be friends with me on Facebook
