  3. Liz my licence folder has 1kb of info transferred into my back up file hun. Can't open it but the computer is telling me it has 1kb of info in there.
    If I need to know how to open/use it there is always support when it's needed..
    Thank you Hayley for this - so much... this is my second computer and it has just come back from repair - this is reassuring to have.xx

  4. Thank you so much for this, there is nothing worse than losing all your files and having to start again and this is a great insurance to prevent the heartaches. thank you once more.

    1. Sorry to 'tag' on to an older post but I have just recently purchased the silhouette (and love it) but I installed Silhouette studio on my desktop and my laptop but my desktop has just been re-formatted. I was following instructions to copy the folder 'com.aspexsoftware.Silhouette_Studio.8' from my laptop to my desktop but it isn't putting the downloaded items in the program. (I used a flash drive to copy the folder).
      I also wanted to do this to back-up in case of further pc issues.
      Does anyone know how to do this or what I am doing wrong?
