  2. Also backup your PORTFILE.ADM file which is found in your C:\UA\Archives directory, and paste it into a different location such as your desktop or thumb drive for transfer to a new PC. (The PORTFILE.ADM file contains the created portfolios and settings.)

  5. When done saving, unzip the downloaded file into a temporary directory. For extraction of the zip file you may wish to use the Windows .zip extracting utility. An alternate open source program that may be used is 7-Zip. (NOTE: Third party utilities are not made or provided by CSI. Use at your own risk.)
