Open the Volunteer Reporter, have only the main menu open.
Click on File menu | Backup.
Click the file folder icon to the right of the "Put the backup in" field
Scroll if necessary to navigate to the drive where the backup will be saved.
Click the plus sign [+] next to the drive to open it. It becomes a minus sign [-].

The file always used to be named simply VRdata.zip, but now in version 5.7 you can have the date added automatically so that it will not overwrite the previous backup. Check the checkbox to add the date.
Finished. Now you can keep the file as a backup. This is handy to attach to an email to send to support sometimes when we need to look at your data.
Click OK to close.
VR does not prompt you if it is overwriting a backup file.
