Backup Button


New member
Just wondering if there is a way to make a "backup" type button, like the one in ProEngineer?

I would like to have a button I could press that would take the active Part/product and save every part into a new folder WITH NO ASSOCIATIONS! It pissed me off when you move products into new directories and they reference parts in the old locations.... so if you move the part to a new computer it can't find any of the parts.

I don't want to use "send to directory" because it's a POS.... save management is also a hunk of complete crap. Anyway, if there is a way to do this, please help me out.
