Sage BCA is OK but what the desktop product has over BCA, apart from better overall functionality (at least) is that the desktop version has a backup facility which then allows restoration after the inevitable screw-up to a point in time where a known dataset integrity point in time is available to restart from. At the moment, if there is a large number of transactions being input and halfway through an error occurs, unnoticed, this cannot be recovered without reversing all of the transactions added after the error. If, for example, a flag was set to ask the user whether they would like to back up after a selectable period of time, or maybe after a certain number of Txs have been entered, then the means to recover would be available and time would be saved. The function could be entirely optional and controllable from a settings key.
