OK, this is fun and interesting. I don't think that your suggestion will work, though.
The backup file that I have found is not simple ascii, though it can be viewed with notepad. Each entry has 40 or so control characters, and in at least two places within that 40 characters, the control characters seem to increment by some algorithm that may or may not be easily figured out.
So, to create 7000 entries, I would need to write a program to reproduce the control characters with proper incrementation, but without knowing the algorithm. It might be doable, but I'd be a little nervous about my chances.
Anyone pushed the boundaries of how many entries the system can handle?
