I recently got version 9.05.  I imported from my old version 7.04 and everything works fine, BUT when I try to back up... create .sqz file, I get this message before the back up is finished:  "Input file read failure - This error occurs when a file read operation is performed on a zip file that is locked or restricted by another process."

Please help!

The ZIP file error usually occurs when you try to backup to a destination other than your hard drive.

 

You don't 'import' updating a v7.04 project to v9.05... You restore a v7.04 backup or copy a v7.04 project to a v9.05 project folder and simply open the project.

The destination file is in the hard drive. So that isn't the issue.

Is the destination folder being monitored by some automatic backup facility?  If so, that will interfere with the writing of the backup.

Not that I am aware of. My old version backs up with no problem

Try backing up the project data files, accents and filters only and use the backups folder as the destination.
