Don't worry about library backup

When you have carefully edited your metadata you are afraid from library corruption and from vendor lock-in. FingerPDF saves its data inside PDF (embedding its internal data into available fields from PDF specification). If you change computer, corrupt your FingerPDF library, all you need to do is to start a fresh reimport of your PDF files.
