Oh no! To save your settings, use the Save Profile in ACPs "ACP" menu. Also do this in MaxIm where it is called Configurations in the File menu. ACP produces a Single ZIP file in My Documents\ACP Astronomy\Profiles. I think Maxim uses a directory for each Configuration but check with MaxIm docs. Then copy to a thumb drive.

It's also useful to get a low-cost box which lets you put your old disk into it and then it is a USB external drive.
