Database backup and restore
On one of the dropdown menus, you could provide a database backup function, whereby the database could be saved to any folder on the computer, external HD, or even flash drive. I'd hate to lose all my work if my computer should go belly up! If that happens, after Play It Live is installed on a new computer, the database could be restored. Thanks BTW, I use an external HD for all music and I have a second external HD to back up the first.

Would be nice to have a buttom or on the drop down we could select to backup data to a specific folder selected

I'd also really like to have this feature, rather than to have to start from scratch again should my computer die.

This is possible, though it's not quite as fast-and-easy as one click. https://www.playitsoftware.com/Support/FAQs/How-do-I-back-up-my-data I set-up desktop shortcuts to the folder where my database is stored. Then I can just copy it to a flash drive or even one of my Google Drive sync folders. As a wedding DJ, this allows me to sync the database between both of the laptops I bring to my events (one primary, one backup). All my music is on external hard drives (also synced). I just need to make sure the correct drive letter is assigned to the drive and I'm good to go.
