I want to use zip backup to CD to backup my outlook datafile. Because outlook locks it's datafile I have to turn outlook off before the backup runs, then turn it back on afterward. In order to automate the process I wrote two very simple batch files (one to close it and one to open it). Both batch files work great by themselves, however when I implement them from within your "run before and after" option, the script that is supposed to be run afterward never runs. When I test a dos box pops up, the first batch file runs, outlook closes, a successful backup is run, and that's it. A second dos box never opens up and the "open outlook" batch file never runs. The backup is successful and did not hang. What is the problem?

Here's another post to request help with this problem. Looks like I've been waiting for help on this issue for close to 5 weeks now.

I am also frustrated by this. I found that the "Run before" works, but "Run after" does not. I really would like to see this work.

A few minutes after making my earlier post, I found that v3.20 fixes this problem. Thank you!
