How to retrieve a Logix5000 PLC

program
RSLogix 5000 PLC projects are stored in a file format with the extension:

*.ACD
The ACD file encompasses the entire RSLogix 5000 project and is the only file you will need to retrieve.

However, it is important to insure you retrieve the program that is currently running in the PLC.
