I highly recommend that you change your practice. Grdb files are not portable. That means you may not be able to open them if you rename them or move them. The only safe way to backup is to export in the Gramps XML format (.gramps).

Subject: Re: [Gramps-bugs] Unhandled user error?

I think the problem was I didn't have the RCS package installed.
Not sure how Checkpoint is used...  right now I just save off copies of the *.grdb every now-and-then when I want to have a point that I can return to if needed.
All I did was:
 - 1 - Had a .grdb open (with 60 to 125 individuals and ~5.8MBytes of media associated)
 - 2 - Selected TOOL->Revision Control->Checkpoint the Database
 - 3 - Clicked the "Archive" button
Then it gives me that "unhandled user error" message.
I will install the RCS package before I try again.  I guess I am just one of those fools that proves nothing is fool-proof.

It looks like you are using a custom checkpoint. Can you provide some detail on what you were doing to get this crash? How can we reproduce it?

User Information:

I was going to archive/backup using the "Checkpoint Data" tool.  Probably a user error (like not including a filename).
