How can I backup my Replicator jobs configuration?
Last Updated 5 months ago

Your Jobs and other configurations are stored under your profile as plain text files.

To backup your settings:

1. Exit Replicator
2. Run the command below to open Explorer to the profile directory (Windows Key + R)
3. Copy the files somewhere safe.

explorer "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Karen's Power Tools\Replicator"

There's an easier way to open this folder:

1. Click the About button on Replicator.
2. Double-click the Settings Folder location in the middle of the About window.
3. Be sure to Exit Replicator before you backup your settings files.

Q: Can't I just Replicate this directory?
A: Yes, you could create a job to replicate that directory. You'll need to use the real, absolute path. In my case, that would be C:\Users\joe\AppData\Local\Karen's Power Tools\Replicator, but yours will differ according to your user name.
