Does anyone know the default directory in Windows 10 where WX5 Evo versiom 2020.2 stores the project files? I would like to back these files up by copying them to  a thumb drive.

Hello Michael,

The default directory is C:\Users\User_name\Documents\Incomedia\WebSite X5 - Evo  (replace User_name with the actual name of the Windows user).

However, please be aware that this is not the best way to back up a WebSite X5 project.

The only bulletproof way to back up a project is to export an IWZIP file in Step 5 of the software.  The IWZIP file is a compressed file which encapsulates every single piece of data required to recreate a WebSite X5 project successfully.  An IWZIP file can be imported back into WebSite X5 at the Project Selection screen.

If you keep IWZIP files as backups you need never lose a WebSite X5 project, ever.

Kind regards,
