How To: Manually Backup and Restore Files

This is to show you how to move your files from your old folder to the new location of where the program is installed. Before you can follow these directions, you need to have the newest version of Cabinet Solutions installed or else the directory will not be there.

  1. Double click on "My Computer" and then on "Local Disk C" or "C Drive".
  2. Double click on "Program Files". If you see a message that appears on your screen marked "Show contents of this folder", click on "Show contents of this folder" and then Double click on "Cabinet Solutions".
  3. Now Minimize this screen by left clicking on the " _ " in the upper right hand corner of your screen, near the " X ".
  4. Double click on "My Computer" and then on "Local Disk C" or "C Drive".
  5. Double click on "CS400". If you see a message that appears on your screen marked "Show contents of this folder", click on "Show contents of this folder" and then Double click on "CS400".
  6. Click on "View" at the top of your screen and then click on "Details".
  7. Click once where it says "Type". This will group the file types together, making it easy to sort through them.
  8. First set you'll be looking for is your Customized Cabinets. (Cabinets you've saved in your library.) If you do not have any Customized Cabinets, you can skip to number 9.
    1. Scroll until you see "CCB File" and left click ONCE on the name of the first item under where it says "Name".
    2. Scroll down until you see the last file marked "CCB File", hold down the shift key on your keyboard and then left click ONCE on the last file name.
    3. Now that your items are selected, left click on "Edit" at the top of your screen, and then left click on "Copy".
    4. Now Minimize this screen by left clicking on the " _ " in the upper right hand corner of your screen, near the " X ".
    5. Open the "Cabinet Solutions" folder that should be already be on your "Task Bar" on the bottom of your screen and then left click on "Edit" and then left click on "Paste".
    6. Minimize this screen by clicking on the " _ " in the upper right hand corner again, and open the "CS400" folder that should already be on your "Task Bar" at the bottom of your screen.
  9. Next, we look for the Job costing files. Repeat the same steps as Step 8a through 8f, but instead of looking for "CCB File" under "Type", you are looking for "CSD File", which are your standard files. You will want to select all of those files BUT the "AUTOSAVE.CSD". This file does not need to be backed up.
  10. Make sure you select and copy the file marked "WOODTYPE.NAM". This is your wood type information.
  11. Now we are looking for the Standard files. Repeat the same steps as Step 8a through 8f, but instead of looking for "CCB File" under "Type", you are looking for "STN File", which are your standard files.
  12. The final batch of files to look for are your job files. Repeat the same steps as Step 8, but instead of looking for "CCB File", you will be looking for "Cabinet Solutions Job File".
  13. When you are done with those steps, close both of those Folders and run Cabinet Solutions.
