Location of config files Cura 2.6 / 2.7

Recommended Posts

Posted · Location of config files Cura 2.6 / 2.7

So I had a catastrophic failure on my computer and had to reload. I reinstalled Cura, and I would like to reload config files from backup to get my cura back the way it was before the crash.

I went digging around in AppData. I see some Cura folders, but it seems like the configuration files for printers, etc are just scattered across many files? I tried reloading some but every time I start cura, my old settings are still gone. Looks like what ever I restored is not working.

Does cura store its info in the registry?

Does anyone know which files need to be reloaded to get cura back the way it was?

Cura does not store any data in the registry. All configuration is stored in %APPDATA%\cura\2.6 for Cura 2.6. You need the whole folder.
