Your personalized settings for TheSkyX can become altered or lost through undesired configuration changes, file corruption or media failure. To protect against this, we recommend that your settings be backed up regularly. From such a backup, one can restore former settings when desired, or even configure a different computer with identical settings.
These settings include preferences, toolbar and window configurations, .SKYX documents, observing notes, custom horizons, imaging system definitions, field-of-view indicators, TPoint data and models, and more.
Use the following procedure to make a backup of TheSkyX Application Support Files (ASF) folder—note that this is a description of the folder, not its name!...follow the link for details. You can simply make a duplicate copy in the same location, but for better safekeeping, a copy should be saved to a different storage device (e.g. a second internal or network drive, removable USB flash drive, or a writable CD or DVD).
