Hello! I am using Act! Premium 2011 and have just initiated my first 'scheduled' backup. Because I set it up to 'add' the date to the backup name, I expected the date to be simply added to the end of the name I provided. Instead, ACT! added extraneous numbers to the file name and I can't seem to find any information as to why. The name ended up as DBName 40d97aa7941441de95a9d08a68d009db 2011-08-27 00-15-01.zip. I see the date stamp, but what do the rest of those numbers represent and how do I stop ACT! from adding them?
Your 'sage' advice will be most appreciated. Thank you!

Hello bobk250! Thank you for the update. In the scheduling set-up area, ACT! requires a 'Backup Name' and offers an option of adding the date stamp giving the 'impression' of being able to customize the name of the file. It seems to work at cross-purposes if they then add another 32 characters to the string! Why and, most importantly, is there a way to turn it off?
Thank you for your input!
