Backing up / exporting FARR settings
« on: October 16, 2012, 09:51:29 AM »
Is there any way to backup and export the customizations/settings done in FARR? I'm planning a reformat and re-install of my system drive, and don't particularly look forward to doing it all manually one by one...

(2nd post -- think I may have posted this in the wrong thread earlier...)

The main file you want to back up is: FindAndRunRobot.ini, which contains all your settings.

Additionally, if you have created custom aliases, you want to back up:
  • AliasGroups\MyCustom\*.alias

If you also want to save your lists of launched files and searches, which isn't very important, you could also back up:
  • FindAndRunRobot_searchhistory.ini
  • FindAndRunRobot_launchhistory.ini

These files will be in the MyDocs\DonationCoder\FindAndRunRobot directory on windows vista and later, or in ProgramFiles\Find and Run Robot\ on win xp.

Thanks! I've been wondering about this for the last several years (since I started using FARR) -- every reinstall, I've had to jump through hoops to get my customizations exactly the way they were earlier.
