    Default What needs to be backed up before uninstall?

    Ok, I know there's a section on this in the manual, I just went through it but can't find it. I'm going to uninstall and reinstall Traktor on my Mac. Can someone please tell me what I need to back up before I uninstall. I have backed up all my TSI files. I know there's a certain file for all my cue points and grids etc. Can someone give me a directory as to where this is in OSX please. Just want to be sure I don't fuck this all up. Any other info would be great.

    Many thanks

    Look for the Native Instruments Folder In your documents and copy the whole traktor folder from there. When you reinstall, replace the traktor folder with the backup version. If you have a big collection, this can get quite big so it might pay you to go through first and clear some of the history.

    I already saved that file, just wanted to double check. Thanks for the help, but what do you mean by clear some of the history? What history? The file was about 300mb

    every time you close traktor, a collection file gets backed up. the "backup" folder can get pretty big after a few months. i usually just leave the last few collection files in there and clear the rest. No biggie tho
