What Files Should I Backup to Protect my Holdem Manager?

You will need to save your c:\hm2archive and/or c:\hmarchive folder
You also should move your popup files (.pop) from:
HM1: C:\programfiles\rvgsoftware\holdemmanager\configs folder (if you have changed reports, save that reports folder as well)
HM2: Configs folder in roaming *
Then also export your HUD:
HM1: Open HUD Options - Player Preferences - export
HM2: Open HUD Options - Export
And you should move your note caddy definitions folder *
* Location:
 7: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\HoldemManager\
 XP: C:\Documents and Settings\User_name\Application Data\HoldemManager
