Backup Up and Restore

Post by brickanr » Sun Apr 03, 2022 8:55 pm

I am sure this has been asked many times but since the forum was restored, I could not see what the responses are.

How do I backup and restore pasteitin saved text to another PC. I purchased a new one and still need to use it

To create a backup, right click on the Pasteitin icon in the task bar tray (by the clock) and select Setup from the pop up menu.

In the Options tab - Backup section, click on the Backup Now button (green arrow). It will create a pasteitin.dat.backup and a pasteitin.ini.backup file in the folder specified in the Backup section.

Open that folder in Windows File Explorer and copy the two files onto a removable drive you can transfer to the other computer.

On the destination computer, right click on the Pasteitin icon in the task bar tray and select Setup from the pop up menu.

In the Options tab - Backup section, click on the Restore button (red arrow) and click No in the restore dialog to manually select the files.

Navigate to the removable drive, select the pasteitin.dat.backup file, and click the Open button.
