Backup & restore manager plugin allows to keep your settings safe and restore them in case of troubles with the application. This smart tool can backup your global settings, connections credentials, workspaces and per panel layout settings in one local file, that can be used later to restore them in several clicks.
The backup process is easy and doesn’t require many explanations. Just select the path where your backup file will be stored (OptimusFLOW backups folder by default; recommended) and press the [ CREATE BACKUP ] button.
Once the process is started, you will see the progress screen, showing the backup process flow. When the backup will be finished you can press the [ FINISH ] button to get to the starting screen. Each backup is created with the automatic name by the template: “Date Time.zip”.
In case you want to restore some previous settings or wish to apply some custom settings (got from another OptimusFLOW user, that backed up its settings previously), follow the [ RECOVER SETTINGS ] button.
Here you can find two ways of Backup file selection:
From backups folder
From custom file
The “Backups folder” is the default OptimusFLOW folder where it saves all automatically created backup files and proposes it to store yours, manually created. The Backup & restore manager checks this folder and displays you all the found files to import settings. You may also select some different location of your backup file, using the “From custom file” option.
Once you select the required backup file and press the [ START RECOVERY ] button, you will see the recovery process flow. When finished, you will be asked about the application restart. This is the required action to apply your newly imported settings.
