Provide selectable option to allow upgrade/ downgrade to save profiles before processing

Add a function to the upgrade/downgrade process to automatically save off existing profiles into a new FRS  directory (and not overwrite existing saved profile information) prior to executing the upgrade/downgrade process.

This will allow retrieval of the profiles should the op forget to save them before starting the upgrading/downgrading process

    I am sorry but this does not make sense,  The software must be running to backup or restore profiles and the software must be stopped for the upgrade or downgrade.  It is much more reliable to NOT automate too much,  However possibly a reminder message would help?

    I think it's a good idea for SSDR to keep a copy of profiles in the directory associated with the version running. This may be a problem for "M" type machines. However, perhaps a network drive address could be stored in "M" type machines to facilitate saving the profiles. Seems like an easy routine to program.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
