The profiles are stored in the radio.   You can use the Export function to export them to any location you want and re-import them to the radio.  Page 50 of the manual.

That I knew.
I didn't ask the questions correctly.
I exported my profiles to my computer as a backup...Duh, I didn't write down the location they were exported to.
That's why I asked what the suffix would be so I could do a search.

When you elect to export a profile, you are given some choices as to where you'd like to store them. Like the previous comments say, it will default to the desktop, but if you have somewhere else you would like to store them, like "Documents\Profiles", or anywhere else you'd like to store them, you do have a choice. The trick is...remembering where you stored them hihi.  Good Luck. The default file suffix is as stated in previous comments with a timestamp.

I found them and moved it to my Desktop.
Thanks for the help. Hopefully SSDR will offer me the option the next time I save the Profiles.

In general, if you get into a spot like this, do the step over -- in this case export the profiles again, and take note of where they are going and the file name.  Then go have a look at the file, using whatever method you prefer, to find details such as file name suffix.  I make this mistake all of the time.

Or, start the export but stop short of actually writing the file.  Take note of where the dialog box says the file will be written, etc.
