Virtual store ist the isolated place where windows redirects data written
by non-authorized applications that try to write data to a place within the
system's area, so also the system's program files folder. The redirected files are
marked with a lock symbol.
Since OP-X PRO-II is conceived to write its licensing data as well as patches and
banks created by the user to a folder next to the plugin windows will redirect
those to virtual store instead. This does not affect working since windows makes the plugin
"see" all data in the right place, but if you want to access those files in
the file system, e.g. to make a backup of your custom presets and banks, you
won't find them in the folder they should be.
Instead they can be found in a mirrored place in the virtual store area. In order
to be able to access this place you neeed to activate hidden file view before.
In Windows 7 this is done like this:
Start->Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Folder Options->Show hidden files and folders
View: Files and Folders->Hidden files and folders: Check "Show hidden files, folders and drives"
Now you can see the hidden "AppData" folder in your user area, which leads to virtual
store. So if you have installed the plugin to e.g.
Program Files(x86)->Common Files->Steinberg->VST2
you will find the mirrored place here:
Computer->Local drive->Users->Your User Name->AppData->Local->VirtualStore->Program Files(x86)->Common Files->Steinberg->VST2->SonicProjects
The license file can be found in the root folder, and your presets and banks in the
"OP-X PRO-II" folder. So you can backup them from here.
If you should have licensing issues after a major update of cubase then you simply could
copy back the license file back to the original unmirrored place if the expected path out of
some reason should not anymore be virtual store.
