Cubase related directories on Windows 8

Ever wanted to transfer, share or backup some of your settings in Cubase? This list will tell you where you can find the file you are looking for. Please note that the directories that have percentage marks (e.g.
%something%) are relative directories. This is because some users might have a different directory set-up (i.e OS on another drive than the C drive). You can actually just copy and paste the directories in Windows Explorer no matter where you have your OS, documents and so on.
