Database Backup Tool

It would be very nice to have a back-up tool that, upon activation, saves the database with a  date-time indicator appended to the file name.  Example: the files  database.rms and database.rmx would become (for a file saved today, 14 May, at 14.48 hours) database-080514-1448.rmd and database-080514-1448.rmd. The current system is cumbersome. It would also be very very nice if the program would recognize that the back-up file isn't a standard db file and would alert a user that s/he is attempting to modify a backup instead of an active database file.
