How to Back Up or Export Library in Silhouette Studio V4.2 (in 3 Steps)

To back up your library in Silhouette Studio V4.2, there's a slight change from previous versions of the software.

Now that there's no Local User library folder, right clicking on that folder to export the library isn't possible. This free Silhouette Studio tutorial will walk you through the three quick steps it takes to export your entire Silhouette Studio library.

Step 1: Open Your Silhouette Studio Library

Start by opening Silhouette Studio and going to the Library area.

Step 2: Find the Silhouette Library Export

Towards the upper left of the Silhouette library, click your name. This will open a drop down menu.

Select Library Export to open a pop up window asking you where you want your library file to be stored.

Step 3: Decide Where to Save Library Backup

Browse to the location on your hard drive and then click Okay.
 
Now click the Export button and your library export will begin.  Keep in mind this will save your entire Silhouette Studio library as an .exec file - not as individual files.

This exec file can not be previewed but it can be used as a back up in case your library is lost. It can also be used to move your entire Silhouette Studio library to a new computer.
