hi.

I've got to do this latest update.

I know how to back up cataloges ( I just do it automatically anyway), but how do I backup all my presets as well?

I'm sure I've done it before but just can't remember.

Cheers.

This link is to an Article by the Lightroom Queen that explains the location of many 'Lightroom' files-

FILE LOCATIONS

You can use a File Browser to Copy&Paste, or use other software apps that will backup the folders rquired.

For me, the "Store Presets with Catalog" option in preferences makes this super easy. IF you backup your catalog with a real backup application (not LR's very limited backup schema), then the presets will get backed up if you point your backup to the catalog where the presets now reside. Easy to find, easy to backup.
