Thank You Toucan / 7Zip, and of course PortableApps...

A successful restore from backup today following the crash of a USB drive. Here is a description of the process. When I first started with Toucan just a few weeks ago, something of this sort would have been helpful...
- Five rotating backups.
- The backup is 20 megs -- too large to extract using the Windows XP implementation of Zip. A different tool is needed...
Planned enhancements to the backup regimen (opinions?):
- Incremental backups combined with the backup rotation, to reduce wear on the USB drives.
Again, thank you to the developers of PortableApps (John Haller), Toucan (Steve Lamberton), 7Zip, and J Neutron who helped clarify Toucan usage.
