Hi all,

Steve and I receive 4 to 5 emails each week from people whose computer has crashed. Steve will work with them to get the software running again, but often years of blood pressure readings have been lost. It is a stressful and heart breaking experience!

Steve created the Online Locker back-up which is an easy way of insuring your readings are safe if your computer crashes. Steve and I wanted to keep the cost of the Online Locker as little as possible as we know it will help save a lot of stress for you and us!  Smiley A yearly subscription is only $9.95. Learn more about it at:

Thanks! Kellie

    Although the online locker is obviously a useful alternative,  some of us are wary of trusting our personal medical information out in the internet, now matter how safe it claims to be.  One thing i have noticed is that none of your programs has an export readings,  or save file option.  This would allow the user to backup the readings file and lessen the chance of data loss by storing it in an alternate area of the computer or storage device.  I would strongly suggest you include an export / backup option on top of the online locker.   Huh

      I did a bit more exploration and realized you can actually back up your readings by printing it to a CSV or TXT file. It would still be useful if there could be a backup to an access or excel format.

    You should be able to import the .csv files into Excel (and possibly Access). Also, the .xml files in which the readings are stored, are a human readable format.

    In the next version I have included a “Local Backup” feature that will zip up all the data files into a single zip file.

    In the current version, if you backup your documents folder (and sub folders), which almost all backup programs will do by default, then your readings will be backed up.

    Thanks for the feedback and hope this helps!
    Steve
