Perform the Backup:
The backup feature is accessible from the Main Screen off the File Menu. Just select Backup/Restore Data, then Backup/Save Data Files to Archives. This will create a .zip file of all the files used in the Envelope Printer Pro program. It prompts you for a name for the file to be created for your backup.

Copy the .zip file you created to a flash drive or other form of storage media. Take this to your new machine and run the Restore option.

Perform The Restore:
The restore feature is accessible from the Main Screen off the File Menu. Select Backup/Restore Data, then Restore Data Files from Archives. This will prompt you for the Name and location of the archive file you wish to restore. Navigate to your Flash drive or other storage media. Click Restore. This will restore the files that you previously backed up and replace what is currently being used in the system.
