For those who got here by the same google search:


C:\Users\*YOUR USERNAME*\AppData\Roaming\cura

Thank you very much.

My reason for asking is that I cannot find 2 older Cura profiles I imported. When I want to import again, Cura says that it is already there and save them as name(1). But, I cannot find them when I look for them under "Profiles".

Can it be that v4.x doesn't "read" v3.x?

    For those that google keeps dumping here the more detailed answer is:


    under "quality_changes" in the above roaming directory location.  It creates two files with an inst extension for each profile you have.

    For those who find this in google now...
    The actual folder where the files containing the profiles are with the current version (4.12)

    C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\cura\[version]\quality_changes\
