I have a lot of FTP, SFTP, LAN, WebDAV server, and other settings in Total Commader for Android, and have just gotten a new device. Is there any way to export all this configuration data for import into Total Commander on another Android device? Manually reentering it would be a major pain. I think I have the settings for 25+ servers on my first device in Total Commander.

I recommend the free app "Helium Backup", it can backup all the app settings, not just from Total Commander and its plugins.

Currently each of available backup solutions has some bad sides:
* solutions like Helium require connection to the Internet, and, which is more important, 3rd party cloud service, not owned or controlled by user. It's up to service owner whether (and how long) some Android versions or devices will be supported, or whole service will work;
* there is an adb backup command which requires a wired connection to PC where ADB software must be installed to perform this command. Doesn't work on some early Android versions.
* rooting the device. Then it's possible on device to copy/restore settings from/to some TC plugin data protected folder.

I support the wish to have simple "Export/import settings" feature for each of TC plugins to make a local on-device settings backup (e.g. to some folder on SD-card) which is easy to restore even on not rooted device without a need to install or use of 3rd party software.
