Where is setting to keep files on SD card after importing to Quik

I'm using Windows 10 and have Quik Desktop for Windows and I have the GoPro Hero 4 Black.  The previous GoPro interface that automatically imported the files direct from my SD Card had a setting that I could say yes or no to saving the files on the SD card after importing. I had set it so it would delete the files after importing. 

 

I have since changed my mind, I do want to leave the files on the SD card after importing, but in the meantime I downloaded Quik which seems to have overwritten whaterver GoPro importing interface was there before (I don't remember what it was called). Quik does not have this setting at all. So, after every import, the files are deleted on the SD card. I can't find a setting like this in the GoPro Studio either.

 

How can I change this so the files are not automatically deleted?

Re: Where is setting to keep files on SD card after importing to Quik

@wendyd448 - To adjust those settings, connect your camera to your computer and open Quik. Click on your camera under the "Connected Devices" section. Next to the image of the camera, you'll see a gear/settings icon.

On the settings screen that pops up, you'll want to make sure that the second checkbox near the bottom of the window that says "Automatically delete files from camera after importing" is unchecked.
