My Backup File Not Displaying

Last updated:


 Your SOFTWARE creates two files during the backup process.
The first is an archive of your custom content and will be named
The file will contain your custom content such as market scans and Quote lists.

The second file that is created is an index of this custom content that the Restore process will need access to in order to carry out a Restore.
This file will be named BackupList.hlf.

If you have backed up your software to a USB stick or a location other than the default then the backuplist.hlf file may need to be manually copied to the same folder as the file.


To manually copy the backuplist.hlf file you will need to navigate to your start menu
