Create a config archive for local storage

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  3. Under Configs, click Configs.
  4. Under Config Archive, select Save a Copy of Each Config to the Config Archive Directory, As It Is Downloaded.
  5. If you are low on storage space and only need the last and current configs, select When Configs Are Edited, Only Retain the Last Version.
