Where Are The Files?

Windows 8/7/Vista

With Windows 8/7/Vista your files are in a folder named My ShowPro Files in your Documents folder...

My ShowPro Files 1

The My ShowPro Files folder contains the Show Backup folder where your backups go by default. Most everything that is saved is saved here by default although you can navigate to any location to save your files. ShowPro will remember the last location you saved a backup to for each database and will continue to save to that location as long as it is available. This allows you to have your backups go to a memory stick for example. The File menu in ShowPro has a "My ShowPro Files" item on it that will open this folder for you.

Your actual horse show data is stored under 8/7/Vista in Public\Public Documents\ShowPro...
