Simple Home Budget will backup its database file every time you do the change and close the application. By default, the backup file will be stored into the same directory where its database file actually stored. The application maintains by default one back copy, deleting the old one when creating the new one.
It is recommended to set backup directory and the humber od history files to maintain (three should be just enough, but it's up to you). The backup directory could be a directory on your backup drive (thumb drive?), or the directory that is used in backup application (you do backup your data, right?).
The database file is really small, and it will be several years until its size will reach, let's say, one megabyte (yes, just one megabyte, not gigabyte).
"The Simple Home Budget program is an easy interface, with everything I was looking for in a program to set up our home budget while being able to track where on earth our money goes!Ê I find it so helpful to see in a glance who we owe, who we have paid, when things are due!Ê It is a wonderful program and I will share it with my friends and family! When my laptop crashed, and had to be taken back to factory configuration, I lost the program. I emailed their support team, explained my situation, and in the same day, I was able to reinstall it, reactivate it and tomorrow will be setting it all up again!Ê On a scale of 1 to 10 and 10 being the best, I rate Home Budget Software a 10." - Deonna Bishopp, Indiana
"I am glad that you offered a 30-day free trial. I might not have tried Simple Home Budget otherwise, and, after about a week, I realized that I finally had found the right budgeting software for me -- not too complicated nor too basic. Because Simple Home Budget is so fast and easy to use, I find that I enter my data pretty often (I'm usually lazy about doing that sort of thing). I now have a realistic budget based on my actual spending habits and a quick, easy and flexible way to stay within it. Kudos to you for creating such useful, helpful and inexpensive software and for your quick and helpful customer support." - LP
