When you are migrating your data from 1 device to another, we recommend creating a Cubit Database backup and restoring this backup to your new device.
To get more information on how to create a database backup, click here.
Note: You will need to have the same Cubit version installed on your device as the version of Cubit the database backup was created.
To restore your Cubit Database backup file, please do the following:
1. Right-click on your Cubit Estimating icon and select Open file location. It will access C:\Program Files\Buildsoft\Cubit folder.
