How to back-up Mach3 settings ?
« on: August 31, 2010, 08:30:20 AM »
It's been 3 years since I've installed Mach, and I'm concerned that if my computer crashes, I will lose all the settings I put in.
I'm not a computer whiz, but I do recall that there was a way to back the settings up.
Thanks for any help.

Copy the xml for the profile you use, for example if using the default profile it is called Mach3Mill.xml and is in the main Mach3 folder. If you have tool tables or offsets or custom macros then also save the macro folder for your profile. Any non standard screen then you need to save the .set for it and also any bitmaps associated with it.
Also dont forget to keep a copy of your licence file, its in the main Mach3 folder and is called Mach1Lic.dat.
