Hi Colin,

That's about it. What else would you like?
It could also handle restoring files, but the 7-zip gui (or Archive Manager in 
Linux) handles that pretty well already.
I suppose it could simplify restores a little better as it already knows where 
the archives are and what the GnuCash data file is.
I'm happy to consider mods.

Another mod I've thought about would be to cater for multiple settings for 
people that have multiple GC books.
