Extractor Plus keeps its database files in "C:\Program Files\Common
contains your orders data, and the Address Book.
You can explicitly create a safe copy of the database files anytime if you press the "Save Back-up To" button, and select a different folder where the files are to be copied.
Anyway, Mail Extractor automatically creates safe copies anytime you close the program. They are created in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\MEP Backup". You can cancel it when prompted, but it is recommended that you accept the offer. If accepted, the program will create the copies and name them as "yyyy-mm-dd hh.nn-Settings.edb", where "yyyy" is the current year, "mm" is the month, and "dd" is the date. "hh" is the hour, and "nn" is the minute of the creation.
The files are saved and deleted cyclically, and the program always keeps maximum of four different backup copies of each database files. In other words, when it attempts to create the fifth copy of a backup file, it will delete the oldest copy of the file, and then create the new copy. Thus you can't have more than file copies. This is to avoid unnecessary piling, and at the same time to have more than safe backup.
