The process for attaching a folder and copying files to an external Hard Drive, USB drive, or network location is a simpler process than burning CDs or DVDs.  To copy files to an attached folder:

  1. From the Appraisal Desktop, click Folder in the menu bar on the upper left and select Attach Folder.

  2. Click Browse to locate the network directory, external hard drive, or USB drive you wish to use in TOTAL.  When you find it, select it, and click OK.

    Browse and select folder

  3. Click Attach in the Attach Folder window.

  4. Now, simply locate and select the report(s) you want to to copy from your My Reports or Shared Reports folders.
  5. Right-click the selected file(s) and choose Move or copy.

    Move or copy selected reports

  6. In the window that appears, choose the Copy option, select your attached folder, and click OK.

    Copy to attached folder

That's it!  A new copy of each report you selected is created and placed in your attached folder.

If you wish to move the reports to another computer that has TOTAL installed, simply follow the same basic steps as above — attach the folder that you moved your reports to on your external storage device in that copy of TOTAL, then move them to TOTAL's reports.
