Back up your SmartAdjust sets

  3. Go to the Common Paths tab on the upper left. Then, click the Open button to the right of Data files.

  4. In the window that appears, double–click the Users folder to open it. Then, find the folder that corresponds to your TOTAL username and double–click it to open it.
