The process to back up the Silhouette Studio library in V4.2 is still very easy - and even with automatic library backups, it's still necessary.   If you want to move your entire Silhouette Studio library to a new computer, this Silhouette tutorial will walk you through.

Start by opening your Silhouette Studio software. Click on the Library tab at the top right. 

With the library open click on your name at the top to expand the dropdown menu.

Click "Export Library".

The Silhouette Studio library back up will save as an EXEC file. It's not able to be previewed, but if you need to use it to move your entire library to a new computer or in the event you lose your entire library and don't have any more recent Silhouette Library Snapshots, you can import this EXEC file to restore the Silhouette Studio library.

  3. You can manually back up your cloud folder separately if you want to, but it' snot necessary as they are saved on the cloud.
