Where are the settings saved?

(1/1)

DoctorJellybean:
Every x months, I do a Windows reinstallation from a master backup to clean out all the junk, etc. I really wouldn't want to set up all the various options for Copy Handler again, e.g. favourite folders, etc. Are the settings saved somewhere to save it as a backup?

Ixen:
When CH is installed using the official installer, you can find the settings in:
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Copy Handler

In portable version, settings are kept in the same directory you run the app from.

To backup settings only ch.xml is needed.

DoctorJellybean:
Except that the ch.xml file doesn't seem to contain the "shortcut list" for favourite copy\move to locations. It would be nice if CopyHandle had Export\Import Settings options.

Ixen:
It has to contain the shortcut list - there is no other place those settings are stored. Please make sure you're looking at the right ch.xml file.
I have filed the feature request for you at https://dev.copyhandler.com/browse/CH-335, although I can't really say if/when it will be implemented.

IrvingRit:
Is there an easy way to export and import settings nowadays btw, Ixen?
