How to restore your Presets on Mac:
The process of restoring your presets is simple, you will need to drag and drop the selected folders that you copied to your Desktop and drag and drop them into the same location. If you are running the Photo 10, simply drag all of the folders you backed up (Effects 10, Enhance 10, Portrait 10, Resize 10 and Extras 10) into the "ON1" folder shown below:
Once you drag the folders into the "ON1" or "onOne Software Folder" for legacy versions, a dialog box will appear saying that these folders already exist in this location. Please click "replace". If you are dragging all of the folders at once, simply check the "Apply to All" box. This will replace the Presets folder with the folder containing your presets:
