allow me to rewrite this post and maybe you will see what i meant. now, you may still disagree, and thats fine, but like i said its just my opinion that a better term could be used:

perhaps the term "Default" would be better to use when indicating the backup tool chooses what to backup?
rewrite:

i think its confusing to use the term "automatic" to mean the user is choosing to allow the app to decide "what files to pick for backup" as opposed to meaning "make backups automatically" (as in timing wise).

perhaps the term "Default" would be better to use when indicating the backup tool chooses what to backup?

/rewrite

now again, if you disagree, thats fine, this is clearly your baby and you're more than entitled. i simply offer that as a suggeston from a future user, and i would also add that in the future, if a small winamp plugin is ever designed to spawn your standalone app automatically it would help eliminate possible crossover confusion or conflation then as well if it had timing options. again, jmho.

just for clarity's sake, i'd write the option as:

"
Default Mode

The app will backup/restore the default winamp files as determined by the backup tool.
"

the reason i'd write it that way (or similar) is b/c you don't want to be "liable" for saying what is or isn't important, meaning what you define as "important" may not be what the user had in mind, and so don't expose yourself.

these comments are only meant to be constructive, and you're under no obligation to listen to any of them. i look forward to using the app.
