PM snapshot settings
« on: May 14, 2006, 12:44:39 AM »
Kirk, I've just rebuilt my laptop and descovered that I didn't make a note of where the snapshots are saved. What are the default locations for these on a windows install ? and what are the file extensions, so I can drag them back of backup.

It would be great if these settings were able to be picked up with the new File and settings transfer wizzard.

Thanks

Andrew

They are in the Application Data section of the Documents and Settings section of your user account.  For me this is in the following path:

C:\Documents and Settings\Kirk Baker\Application Data\Camera Bits, Inc.\Photo Mechanic\

Each dialog puts its settings files in its own folder.  For instance the Copy dialog puts its settings in a folder called "CopyOptionsSettings".  The files have the names you called the snapshots when you created them.  Their file extension is ".snap".

If I can figure out how to get these files added to the File and Settings Transfer Wizard, I will.

HTH,

-Kirk

Yes, they're in the Registry.
