When trying to access tools from a particular set in your Tool Chest, you receive the following message: “Error Loading Tool Set.”

  1. Go to Revu Preferences  (Ctrl+K).
  2. Select Admin from the left sidebar menu.
  3. Under the Options tab, select Backup.
  4. Choose a location on your local drive to save a zipped folder of your backed up settings.
