I have used this software for many years, and while I have enjoyed its ability to manage URLs gracefully, t GT technologies has not, to my knowledge, implemented a means of backing-up one' URLs to a CD. Formally they offered a 3 1/2 half-inch diskette backup, but very few computers are coming with those drives anymore, as the software is now all on CDs and etc. numerous request of the company to change it have seemingly failed to generate a change to their product, unless I'm behind in versions, now 7.4, I believe
