Selected Backup Folder Doesn't Stay

ACT 2012 on Win 7 Pro x64

Remote Database

 

I have set the backup folder preference to Q:\Backup.  I will then use browse to put the backup into Q:\Backup\Monday, Tuesday, etc. for the respective day.  However, when I click Browse from the Backup menu instead of going to Q:\Backup it goes to the ACT backup sub-dir in ..\Users\...\documents\act\act data\backup.

This behavior does not occur on the host database on a system running Win XP.

I did not experience this with ACT 2011 on the same computer.  Any ideas on how to correct?  It's more of a nuisance than anything but now it has me curious.

Can't speak to the differences between versions on this one, but my personal machine never "remembers" the last backup location either...

Re: Selected Backup Folder Doesn't Stay

It's odd because the Win XP machine doesn't have this problem, nor did my Win 7 x64 before ACT 2012.

My workaround was to create a shortcut to jump to my backup sub-dir of choice.  It gets me there...
