Good day. I am awaiting a fresh copy of ASv6.5, planning to use the archived data feature of it because I dont have internet access @ home, from where I do my flying.I wanted to know more about these (archived data) files to download.1.Could I download 2-3 years worth of real world weather in a relatively short time perioud, one evening??2.How much space does one year's worth of weather files occupy?? mb??3.And can these files be backed up?? so I would not have to haul my PC to a location, with internet connection AGAIN ;-) In case I have to reinnstall or reconfigure something.Thanks in advance.Golli.
