To copy the DS6OP010 file to the backup folder

In the following instructions, ensure you substitute the file locations with the directories listed in your error message.  The instructions below are an example of the DS6OP010 file residing the directory S:\SOL64 and the backup folder S:\data\MYOB\backup\Group0\000003C.
