Harold, I'll try to answer these questions if I can. (Clint can correct 
me if I am wrong.)

Here is what I did.
I went to Start>Programs>Startup, a menu came down and I right clicked 
on ERUNT autobackup then selected Properties.
The target line on mine already had all the instructions in it already 
except the (space)/days:5 so I added that (space)/days:5.
Now what that does is delete everything except the last 5 days.

Check your and see if it is the same.

The quotes that are required should already be there.

I was unable to copy and paste originally but that was due to a 
different problem which you may not have.
