ALWAYS WORK ON A COPY!
Treat your business data with tender loving care. Always work on a copy of your data file when performing major operations or if you're just not fully comfortable with the possible outcome of your learning process.
IMPORTANT: Remember to quit REST before making the copy. Being able to go back to a pristine original if need be is always a nice thing. So look for the AWOC alert!

- Remove the old REST icon from your dock to prevent opening the older version
- Once you are confident that your new Version of REST has updated, you can delete or archive the
older version of REST.
