How to back up stock file?

I was just wondering if anyone has a link to where i can learn how to back my stock file up on my computer. If there isn't a link hopefully someone can explain it to me. I loaded the spartan 210 tune last night and i need to back my stock file up somewhere just in case the one on the sd card gets corrupted. I was also wondering if i can still retrieve my stock strategy with a tune loaded? Or will the strategy be different with a tune loaded?

Ok, thanks. I figured that it was still stored, but i wasnt sure if having a tune loaded changed the strategy numbers. I never wrote them down before i loaded the tune and i was hopin i could still retrieve them from the DD with a tune loaded.

Yes your strategy will be different with a tune loaded. Depending on your truck it will be something like spartanengine01 and spartantrans01. Your actual strategy code would be something like 8U7A-14C204-JD 7U7A-14C337-AC. If you want the actual strategy code load the stock file on the truck, then go to Vehicle Info and write it down.

That sucks. So ill need to return it to stock before i can get the stock strategys. I wasnt thinkin when i loaded the new tune. I need to have all the info so i can register on the spartan site. I think im probably load the 250 anyway. So ill just check the strategy when i go back to stock to do that.
