    I recently had to reinstall qb2000 pro
    when I try to back up to floppy 99% shows in the working window
    and then I receive an alert message that my data did not successfully back up. Any ideas of what the problem could be?

    Did you try another floppy or maybe the one you have may be full.
    If you have an old back up you should be able to restore from that and then try it again.

    I have tried new empty floppies
    unfortunately the last backup was quite some time ago
    so I really dont want to restore those files

    One other thing that I have noticed when I bootup
    I get a invalid protocol message pertaining to "QBURL"
    I close that box and am able to proceed

    Not really sure why it won't back up. Can you try saving to your HD. That way you know it is not the back up utility on QB. Then try to send it to the A: again.

    Searched for the QBURL and only found references to doing a new install and needing to reboot. Nothing more on it.

    Sorry, not much more help. You may try re-installing again as it may have been corrupted. Why did you have to re-install prior? And did you get any errors then?
