New HDD: Backup/Transfer profile from old HDD? (Cura v. 4.13.2)


Recommended Posts

Posted · New HDD: Backup/Transfer profile from old HDD? (Cura v. 4.13.2)

Hello, First post... 

I searched online and could not find a definitive answer: Is everything (the 100% absolute full profile) stored/saved in Ultimaker's online cloud backup? Meaning if my HDD catches fire and lets the smoke out, and I restore from my online backups, will the restored backup be missing anything? 


I saw that people suggested backing up online/cloud (which I am asking about) as well as backing up a local %APPDATA%/BillGates/ folder... Except Linux doesn't have a %APPDATA%/BillGates folder. Further, Ultimaker Cura v4.13.2 either has a bug or maybe Ultimaker doesn't like Linux??? The Help ->> Show Configuration Folder button does nothing. In Cura 4.13.2, installed on Ubuntu 20lts, when you click the "Show Config. Folder" button... Nothing happens, nothing opens, etc. 


Ideally I'd like to install a clean/fresh new OS (and applications) and NOT clone (dd if/of) the old drive to the new drive. Any help/info would be very much appreciated.
