Step 4 – Left click Ok to close Video Hoster. Then the Backup/Restore Dialog will open.

Now the Computers you use this restore on will be identical. You have to make sure that your Song files, are located in the exact same folder on both computers. This is up to you, the customer, to where you store the files. As long as they are in the same folder, Example: C:\MTU\Hoster Songs\, on both computers it will work.
We hope this helps anyone with issues trying to move up to a new system!
