Copying Data from Your Old Computer
ALL of the data for your PatternMaster program is contained in the file PMxCHARTS.SDF (PMBCharts.sdf - Boutique, PMCCharts.sdf - Child's Play,
PMKCharts.sdf - Knits, PMTCharts.sdf - Tailor Made, PMVCharts.sdf - Curves, PMAWCharts.sdf - Applause). It is a database that stores all saved measurement charts,
your default settings, and any saved styles.
To move your measurement charts, saved styles, and saved pattern files and layouts,
you will need to copy the data from your old computer to a back up medium such as a CD, thumb drive, or an offsite back up utility such
as Carbonite or Crash plan. If you did not back up your data and no longer have access to the old computer, you will not be able
to restore the data on your new computer.
To back up your data, launch PatternMaster v5 on your old computer and choose System Tools from the main menu.
Click on the Back Up tab.
Select the location to back up your data and press the Back Up button.

Restoring Data and Files
If you are restoring or moving more than one PatternMaster program, BE ABSOLUTELY certain to create separate folders for each PatternMaster
in your back up location. Many of the files that you back up will have the same name in each program.
Copy the file PMxCHARTS.SDF from your back up location and paste it into the root PatternMaster folder on the
new computer making certain to replace the existing file. The root PatternMaster folders are PMBoutique5, PMChildsPlay5,
PMCurves5, PMKnits5, PMTailorMade5, and PMWApplause5.
If you used the Back Up Utility on your old computer to copy files, the PMxCharts.sdf file will be in the Databases folder
inside the root folder of your PatternMaster program and may be used to restore your data. Make certain to replace the existing file in
that location if asked.
If you backed up the Charts folder, it contains text copies of any measurement charts that you printed. These files
cannot be directly imported into the program. You can use the text copy of a measurement chart to re-enter the measurement charts if needed.

You can use these summaries to recreate any saves styles, if needed though.
