Posted · Save (and restore) all Cura parameters and settings

Hello all,

 

Sorry if the question has already been answered before, but I couldn't find any corresponding topic.

Simple question:

- How can I save (and restore) ALL Cura settings, parameters, profiles, plugins, etc. at the same time and in a single manipulation?

 

I recently reinstalled my computer from scratch and it was very painful to have to reconfigure everything. 🤔

Especially since I didn't remember half of my setting. 😆

 

Is there a way to save everything? A file or a directory to save, may be?

 

Thank you

Emphyrio

    You can just copy the configuration folder to the new computer and you should have everything as before.

     

    The location of the configuration folder can be found when you go to the HELP menu, there is an entry for the configuration folder.

    @Smithy: thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for. I must admit that I didn't see this option.

     

    @nallath: thank you also.

    I saw this plugin, but:

    1) Nothing states what this plugin is supposed to backup. Seetings? Plugins? Everything?

    2) More important: where are the backup files stored? Impossible to find them on my computer.

     

    Many thanks!

    Everything. It also states what it will save if you actually do the backup (and shows how many things it will restore if you open a backup

    They are stored remotely. That is also why you need to login before you can use the plugin.

    Hello @nallath,

    Thank you for your (very) interesting and complete answer. 😄

    I am just wondering why the Ultimaker developers didn't add some little description sentences on that "Cura backups" window which would avoid having to ask such a basic the question 🙂

     

    Again, many thanks!

    Because you're the first person to ask about it 😛

    I guess... That's really weird. Am I the only one to care about backups or the only one to not understand obvious options? 🙂

    Actually, as a software developer, I care a lot about user experience and you must admit that, that window is a little bit... questioning?... 😄

    I think most people just assume that a backup is in the cloud these days? I mean, that's what I do anyway.

    I use tons of softwares that don't backup in the cloud 🙂

    But I probably ask myself too many questions... 😁

    Anyway, thanks for your help!
