When to backup
If you are installing Total Commander over an existing installation you usually do not need to backup anything (for exceptions, see "Additionally" below). If you, however, want to install Total Commander on another computer or are planning to reformat your hard drive, these are the files you need to backup:
What to backup
- This file stores all of your Total Commander related settings except those concerning FTP connections
- Here are all FTP related settings, most importantly your FTP connections (which you see when you press Ctrl-F)
- The location of these files is stored in the registry and can be modified, so it can be different on every computer. To see where these INI files are located, just click on Help - About Total Commander...
- Either of these is your keyfile if you are using a registered version of Total Commander.
- *.bar files
- These files store your button bar(s). No.bar is an exception, as this is an automatically generated empty button bar.
Some files get overwritten when you install Total Commander on top of itself. You either need to back them up or change their attributes to read-only.
- In case you replaced the default wcmzip32.dll with the encryption-enabled alternative.
- If you are using modified menu or language files.
Do not forget to backup plugin configurations. Usually, each plugin uses its own settings file, however, some use the proposed pkplugin.ini, lsplugin.ini, fsplugin.ini or contplug.ini located usually in the same directory as wincmd.ini. See each plugin's documentation for details about where it stores its settings.
