Backup/Restore issue when not signed in


Recommended Posts

Posted · Backup/Restore issue when not signed in

Hi, recently, my Cura 4.3.0 software is crashing everytime I try to lunch it.


The bug reporter window said I can backup my profiles. I have 8 custom profiles to be exact. 


I also not signed in.. So I tried clicking that button which I was hoping it will backup all the profiles and then Cura will reset all the settings and profiles which I can the restore it.


Now, I have clicked that, then signed-in (I am registered though but not signed in in the Software at the time), and the Cura Backup window just shows empty list :( :( 


NOw I lost all my profile. Where is my backup??

    I learned a few years ago not to create or use profiles.  Instead I do something else just as good - I do "file" "save..." and it saves the "project" which contains the STL file, the profile and ALL CHANGES to the profile.  Also if the STL file(s) were moved, rotated, etc that is also saved.  Everything.  Even if you delete the STL file the profile has a copy.  I find this to be a handy way to store "custom profiles".  I'm not really creating profiles - I'm saving all the overrides to an existing profile.


    My friends who create profiles have all kinds of headaches so I've learned to stay away from custom profiles.


    But I have some friends who *do* use them so I'll ask them.
