Export and Import of Disk Bay Layouts

Once a disk bay layout is configured, it can be saved and later used with other KillDisk configurations. This is done with the Export and Import features.

Exporting a Disk Bay Layout

Layouts are saved using the disk bay layout command tool bar's commands. Select Layout, then Export Layout as... in the drop down list of commands. This will open a dialogue where the layout can be configured by setting the Title, description, file name and path to save the layout to. Once these settings are configured, click Save and the layout will be saved as a .dbl file in the specified location.
