Thank you very much

Hi,

Backup the Preferences folder, to be able to get the same custom settings after.

Cubase Preferences folders are:
Mac: ~/Library/Preferences/Cubase X
Win: %appData% \Steinberg\Cubase X_64

Where the X is the Cubase version (for example 13).

Then you can reinstall the system.

To get the license to the new system, just start Steinberg Activation Manager and Sign in with your credentials.
