Transitioning to a new release version - Now's the perfect time to make an Archive


Recommended Posts

As much as a Tip & Technique, this is a reminder that securing your work as a backup is always good practice, and there is no time like the present!

 

It is easy to save over a plan that you created in an earlier version, then regret the edit.

As you take a moment to transition between upgrade versions (like moving from X12 to X13), consider investing in some external storage to save all the project work you've done in the older version.

 

Content that might be worth saving:

  • Project Files like your Plans and Layouts
  • Customized Templates
  • User Catalog
  • Custom Textures
  • Downloadable Catalogs
  • Custom Macros

 

You can use tools like "Backup Entire Plan" to manually create .ZIP archives of entire projects and their referenced files.

You can also view the file locations for the catalogs you've installed along with other resources in Preference>General>Folders>All Program Paths:

Here are some articles that feature File Management concepts that might help you get started.
