Saveing stock file on a SCT X3

I just got my X3 but I don't see anywhere in the menu to obtain stock file. Do you have to first go to program vehicle and then it starts saving stock info or is there something I'm missing?

Here you go.

FOR THE FORD X3 3000, SF3 3015, GM SF3 3100, LIVEWIRE 9600, 9621, 9623, and 9625: INSTALL THE SOFTWARE

* With the Tuner unplugged we need to install the SCT Device Updater Software.
(Software found on the dowloads section of the tech support page)
* Let it install in the default location, clicking next, next, next until you get to Finish. You should see a New Icon on your desktop for the SCT Device Updater Software.

INSTALL THE DRIVERS

* Once installed, Plug in the Tuner and wait for the Found New Hardware Wizard to Pop Up.
* It may ask you "Can Windows connect to Windows Update to Search for Software?" If it does, click "No, Not at this Time" and press Next.
* At the Next Window, Select "Install Software Automatically (Recommended)" and click Next. Windows will search and Install the drivers for your device, Click Finish to Finish the Driver Installation.
* NOTE: If a Found New Hardware Wizard did not pop up, and you get an error in the next step, go to the section for Installing Drivers Manually.

SAVING A COPY OF YOUR STOCK FILE

* Now that the drivers are installed, open the X3/Livewire Updater software. There will be a new Icon on your desktop. (Yellow, Orange and White.)
* Once opened, click on the button labeled: "GET STOCK FILE" this will open the window asking where to save your stock file.
* Browse to the location of your choice.
* This will save your files as Stock.lbu and Flash.lbu
* The current format of the file WILL NOT load back onto the tuner as is. If a situation arises where you need to use this stock file, you will need to contact SCT Tech Support to assist you.

Thanks for this man. Only thing is I still I don't have a clear answer to my question. I'm wondering if when I go to load a new tune onto my truck if the X3 itself will pull the stock file. Cause I'm looking in the menu and there's no where that says read stock file it just say to program vehicle. So if I go to program vehicle and go to add the tune will it pull my stock file?

when you load the tune to your truck it will upload your stock file then put the tune into your truck, when you have the tune on your truck take the the x3 and plug in into the pc and i think you have downloaded the software already.. go to get stock file and click on that and tell where to save it and it will save it for you
