    Question Trying to backup workspaces (not the full CUIX file) using LISP

    Hello y'all!
    Simple question, not so simple answer I'm guessing. I have a LISP that will backup all users ACAD Profiles, PGP file, and CUIX file to the network based on the day and time as well as when the last backup happened. I'd like to find a way to pull out JUST the workspaces for backup. Any solutions would be incredible, leads and starting points work as well!
    Thank you.

    A .CUIX file is nothing more than a .ZIP file. Inside that file is a file named "WorkspaceRoot.cui" - I suspect that contains the workspace data.

    See if that helps.

    The cuix to look for is the "main customization file" like for me C3D, its in a long path under c:\users\xxxxx\appdata...............\c3d.cuix copy and rename to zip as suggested. If you dont know use Option and look at customization files.

    You can also just drop this in Windows Explorer, after you confirm product and version.

    -----> %appdata%\Autodesk\<product>\<version>\enu\Support
    (portions in blue will vary depending on the product and the version)
