Where are Lumion Scenes and Imported Models saved to?

Lumion scenes and imported models are saved in these folders:
  • My Documents/Lumion 7.0/Scenes: All scenes saved in Lumion 7 (2 files per scene: *.spr, *.sva)
  • My Documents/Lumion 7.0/Library: Models imported in Lumion 7 (up to 4 files per model: *.lib, *.lib.mtt, *.lib.inn, *.lib.txx)
The My Documents/Lumion 7.0/ folder is on the C: drive by default.

As with any other important data on your harddrive, we recommend regular backups of the My Documents/Lumion 7.0/ and/or My Documents/Lumion 7.0/ folders.
Redirect Data to a Different Location
The only way to get Lumion to save in a different location is to move the entire My Documents/ folder (which contains the Lumion 7 and/or earlier Lumion version folders) to a different location.

Instructions on this procedure are available on many websites, for example this one. Here's a video showing the steps (this also applies to Win 8+/10):
