Hi,

You have two different types of metadata when using CR. Here they are:

- Comic info: They are stored as a second data stream, if the disk where they are stored is NTFS. Copying the comics to another NTFS disk will be enough to copy the metadata too. You can imagine this second data stream as an \"invisible second file attached to the comic itself\". If you try to copy comics to, for example, a USB stick, Windows will warn you about the data loss.

The second data stream is not available under CD- FAT-formatted disks (like USB sticks, CD and DVD). I think you can format the most recent HUGE USB stick (8 GB+) using NTFS, but I'm not sure about that.

Under FAT, the comic metadata is stored as an XML file. Check Cyo's official posts. There is one about that.

- Catalog info: The explorer-like hierarchy is stored under Documents and Settings -> Your user name -> Application Data -> Cyo. It is stored as a set of XML files. If you use the catalog feature, it's a good idea to back them up too.
