question re plugins

Posted by elaine_canada (My Page) on

I have backed up all my plugins, tubes etc. I know that (God forbid) if I had a crash, I could just put the tubes and fonts back in - but what about plugins. Is it just a matter of backing them up and if needed - just put the file back where I keep it in My Documents, the same as the tubes, fonts, textures etc? Hoping they would work that way.

The reason I ask is that I think, with a crash, you would have to reinstall all programs from the Program file - not just put the folders back on the C drive.

Elaine, download the plugin files to a CD or DVD. Good idea for any thing that you may not be able to replace.

Thanks for answering Joy - I've downloaded everything to an external hard drive, but wasn't sure it would work for plugins. Thanks again,
