Version 8.0.0, built on 4 March, 2019 104 MB
A backbone of Photoshop backup files are graphical data of all types, including work files (*.psd) and different source and output files, where each of these files can be both a result of one job and a source for another project (TIFF, JPEG, PNG and other graphical files).
Along with graphic data, such as ready-to-use image formats and Photoshop projects, Handy Backup allows saving other usable data, e.g., backup Photoshop settings from a CS3 version or completely back up Photoshop CS5 actions under Windows 7.
Caveat! These files may locate in different destinations, depending of user settings and the version of Photoshop software, so backup Photoshop settings CS5 version may be quite different from CS3 settings or Photoshop Elements 11 backup.
Along with dedicated graphic data and Photoshop settings, these are many other data types associated with Photoshop backup, e.g. graphical textures, brushes and other tools, image layers (including special layers) and layer masks etc. Any of these files has a conventional name extension to add it to backup.
Note: We are recommending using file masks for convenient selection of all Photoshop backup save data. This instrument will guarantee you finding any file required, say, for backup Photoshop settings in CS5 or (CS3 settings, or other), all brushes, and so on.
In this brief instruction, we will show how to make Photoshop auto backup using the “Computer” feature built in Handy Backup.
Before selecting Photoshop backup files, please set in your mind which types of files you may want to say. All Photoshop backup data may be split and selected by appropriate extensions.
You may include other file formats in this list, depending of your particular settings and needs. It is the base.
When you are attempting a Photoshop back up, you can find most important data in the next folder (called Photoshop workspace):
Documents and Settings/[user name]/Application Data/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Adobe Photoshop CS5 Settings/Workspaces
Note: For modified workspaces, use the folder name “Workspaces(Modified)” instead of “Workspaces” in the previous string.
