In CNC USB there is an "Export Toolpath to DXF" option under the File menu.  That feature does not work on my Windows 10 laptop which is not connected to the Digital Wood Carver.   It does work when using my XP Pro laptop connected to the DWC.

Now that I've tried to help, I'm offering unsolicited advice ;) 
I'm presently backing up all of my bobcad and dxf files on Google Drive and all photo images on Google Photos.  It's free and allows you access even when away from home...
