I always save my data to a couple of usb sticks.
I don't totally trust them.
I have one plugged in the back (R)
and one in the front (F).
Press Media Button
"All" folder. This literally saves everything that is save able in the Korg.
I do one of these once a month or so, mainly if I've changed a mix of data in the keyboard. I usually just call it "All plus date".
Press "Save to"
Choose USB F or USB R or SSD-U ( for internal drive)
Where it says "New Name", Tap it & write what you're going to call it.
Then it asks what sort of User Data, I make sure everything is ticked
( after all, as far as I'm concerned it's a SAVE ALL)
Takes a little while.
Then if you press "Load " tab, a .set folder with the name should then show up on your usb stick or internal drive.
(If for instance you just wanted song book & styles saved, untick the rest, but I wouldn't call it an ALL, come up with something that explains it)
Go back to Save tab.
Tap on All folder & open it.
Next , you get to individual groups of data.
Global settings, pads , styles etc.
You can for instance just "save" all your user & favorites styles or save your song book.
Press 'Save To'
Choose Location USBF or etc etc
Press "New Set"
Name it ( I'd put song book, with the date) or unless you're going to keep songbooks for different gig's, put the gig name & date(whatever)
This only takes a few seconds.
Next level of open & save , becomes even more individual.
In styles, for instance, you can save a single bank of Favorite or user styles. ( a bank is up to 32 individual styles)
Instead of saving all 10 Favourites & 3 User Banks, you just save the one.
Same scenerio, pres Save etc etc
Last level is the individual style. You can load or save an individual style.
It's simply a case of opening, each layer of folders and loading or saving the item you want.
For instance, you've done a "Save All".
You've accidently deleted or overwitten one of your user styles.
You just go to your saved ALL on usb stick
Hilight Favourites 1 ( or wherever your lost styles is)
Look thru the styles , highlight & load it.
I normally just do Save All's, or or a save of all the styles, whatever.
In your case maybe the the song book & performances.
The only time I bother to save an individual style is when I share it.
Saving too many small bits of data, only gets confusing.
The Songbook is a little hard to understand in the beginning, but it's really great!
This is how I work (not in the reach of my keyboard right now, so I hope I don't miss a step):
1. Choose an appropriate style and - if you like - configure the upper and lower parts
2. Go to Songbook, tab 2, New Song
3. Save the new song, giving it a recognizable name
4. Go to menu, make sure to "enable list edit"
5. Go back to your main songbook list, select the new created song. (!)
6. Select Add to list.
7. The (link to!) the song is now written to your favorites list. You can easily edit this list (sorting for instance) to make it your playlist (don't forget to SAVE the edited list... happened to me a few times). There is also a very handy tool available (Songbook Editor), to maintain the list on your computer.
8. Now, while your song is still selected (!), you can edit - if you like - your STS's, simply by selecting a performance (edititing it if you like) and then use Shift - STS button. The STS is immediately saved in your songbook with the selected song.
9. For pad editing: Disable "easy setting".
10. Go to tab "pads"
11. Choose the pads you like with the song
12. Go to songbook
13. Save entry, enable "current resources" (it took me a while to figure this one out).
The above steps may not be complete, but it gives you a hint how it works.
Once you figured it out, you will really love this feature of your PA; it is very powerful, flexible and handy.
Loads of success!

Tony I found these sites helpful.
BIG POINT: After working through the problems I had on my Kn7000 the keyboard it was far better than before. It's the same in marriages: if you go through the conflict and you learn, the marriage got better. (I'm not sure where that came from,,,,, grin)
