Where are files saved?

Post by cabindream » Mon Jun 17, 2019 2:42 pm

Hello all. We are running DMXIS with out Mac Mini which appears to now have a virus. I want to wipe it and start over but need to know where my show files are saved so I can preserve them. Many thanks!

Everything you need is stored in /Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS

/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS/DmxLibrary = the fixture library
/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS/Macros = the macro library
/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS/Presets = the default show (banks & presets)
/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS/Shows = your custom shows (banks & presets)

Best just to backup the entire DMXIS folder :-)

Thanks. If I “backup the entire DMXIS folder” won’t I miss the files in the library files?

Or do I back up the application folder and library folder?

I meant, back up the entire "/Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/DMXIS" folder.

Great - that makes sense and then I can just download a clean copy of the software and start fresh and reload my shows. Thanks again
