Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some commonly asked questions and answers related to using Remind-Me:
How do I select an End Date for my event?
How do I restore a backup of my calendar?
Background Information: You can make your own backup file from within Remind-Me by using "File / Backup...". Remind-Me also creates automatic backups for you. Whenever you exit Remind-Me it will make an automatic backup for you in the "Backup" folder. The auto-backup feature keeps your last 30 copies of your data. Each auto-backup filename will be appended with a number. If you need to restore one of these, look at the file date and size to determine the best one to restore. The "Backup" folder will be located in your Remind-Me data folder:
For Windows XP the backup folder will be:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Remind-Me\Backup
Tip: The "Application Data" (or "AppData") folder is a hidden folder by default, so you may also need to turn on "Show hidden files and folders" within Windows Explorer's "Tools / Folder Options... / View" dialog.

To acknowledge an event place a check mark in the box to the left of that event in the Alarm dialog. You can control the default state of this check mark in the Alarm dialog with the "File / Options... / Prompts / Due Events Default to Acknowledged" option.
How do I change the number of automatic backups kept by Remind-Me?
Create a string value named "count" and set it to the number of automatic backups you would like kept. A value of "0" is valid, and will cause Remind-Me to not create any automatic backups.
