Migrating xplorer2 to a new OS install

Post by fiveolddogs » 2019 May 21, 23:30

Getting ready to install xplorer2 on a new HD. I seem to recall in the past exporting settings, importing on a new pc, and some of my settings or customizations were lost.

What settings, options, or customizations are NOT backed up via the Actions -> Export settings command?

Taking a look at the x2settings.ini file, I don't see anything about keyboard shortcuts, but maybe I'm missing it.

it's best to export/import to REG format (not INI). If you are installing in your own computer it's best to use the registry
see here for more information www.zabkat.com/blog/13Apr08.htm

some of your settings that include paths (bookmarks etc) will be ported but unless the paths remain the same, they won't work

The registry backup worked well. Thanks!
