Here's a clip below from DIY School (v2.1) PDF file named (02 How to Program Your Hearing Aids). You should save the original professional setting that are stored in your hearing aids first before making your own changes. Though as always, you are best served by reading the DIY School PDF file itself because it is maintained to be up-to-date whereas forum posts (this post included) are not kept up-to-date.

Step 4 – Save your Original Professional Settings (if any)
We as self-programmers, want to do something different for our very first session with HAs that were professionally fit and maybe also measured with REM. We want to save the current settings to our database without making any changes. This gives us the ability to revert back to the Original Professional Settings. During your very first fitting session use the settings from the HAs and then save the settings to both the hearing aids and the database without changing any of the settings. That’s it! You are done. Easy/Peasy, right? The first database session is now a copy of your Original Professional Settings.
