Just out of curiosity, and to solve a nagging tought at the back of my brain, in what order does Elements decide to do its backup, largest first, smallest first, date created/imported, file name or type or any other criteria?  Or is it totally random? Not vastly important in the scheme of things, but I just wondered

Have a look at your original catal sorted by 'oldest first'.

Then, in the Windows Explorer, open your backup folder and have a look at your files starting with B00... sorted in alphabetical order. Compare the display of icons: does it match 'oldest first'?
