There is no provision for generating ECR text file in version 3.0 of E-Return tool. If you have version 4.0, there is a provision for the same.
In main menu of version 4.0, under "GENERATE RETURNS FOR SUBMISSION TO EPFO", you have the option to generate ECR text file for uploading in Employer e-Sewa (online upload of ECR data)
Please note that, apart from wage data, you have to input employee exit and entry details in E-Return tool before proceeding.
Hope you could carry on.

For backup of App_Code folder (Bakup.mdb, est.mdb, form3a.mdb, ret.mdb)

there are two things related with this case
1. backup database internally within same computer via e-return tool v4.0 for this just open the e-return tool v4.0> system admin> backup and restore> backup database:
2. if u want to transfer ur old data to new computer open the following in old system,C:\Program Files\EPFO\E Return Setup\App_code and copy the all .dbs files to a new folder. then install the e-return tool v4.0 in ur new computer freshly and open C:\Program Files\EPFO\E Return Setup\App_code in new computer paste all .dbs file already copied , then restart the system and open e-return tool v4.0 in ur new computer now u can access all of ur old organisation data
