    I had to wipe my machine that I did my Clipsal work on but made a copy of the c drive. I have the files but cannot boot into the OS. Is it possible to extract my old project?

    Yes, copy the CBZ file to the same location on a new machine.

    Yea, the reason I'm posting this is because I cant find the CBZ file. Again, I did NOT do an export before installing a new OS. Does the software automatically make CBZs? Where does it put them?

    I thought it was an xml file and that the export was cbz (C-Bus Zipped?).

    Yes, you can extract the data manually and place it into the next PC's toolkit default project location

    I don't remember the exact location of the files, but they are in the C-Gate folder in a sub folder called tags from memory

    You should be able to copy the xml files and put them on the new install.

    Sounds like you need to get into the habit of backing up :)

    Thank you!

    I found the XML files and copied over the PICED project. It looked like the tag folder also keeps the DLT labels in there.

    They were:
    C:\Clipsal\C-Gate2\tag\<PROJECT>.XML
    C:\Clipsal\PICED\Projects\<PROJECT FOLDER>\
