Thanks for the reply. Sadly, for me anyway, I don't understand what I am supposed to do.
It is such a shame that this thread https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=184646
is so easy to follow in a step by step process - but the simple process of making a back-up is flawed by not being able to read the run menus.
I am also still waiting to learn how one backs up to a micro SD card inserted into the T1. I want a backup that does not get lost/stolen with the T1. Nobody would back up a PC to its own internal hdd - why encourage T1 owners to back up internally. I mentioned this in my opening message.
