Tim.

I'm not fully sure about any hidden files.
But for your modules you would need to backup the "mods.d" and "modules" folder in the program folder.


Regards,
Manfred

Re: How can you back up your notes?

The personal notes, specifically, are found in (assuming the default installation): C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\modules\comments\rawfiles\personal

There are no hidden files. Nor is anything installed outside of the C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The SWORD Project\ directory, except for one or two registry entries.

Re: How can you back up your notes?

So if I just back up the 'C:\Program Files\CrossWire\The Sword Project' to a back up drive I'll have it all.

I'm thinking that a quick and dirty system recovery might go like this:
-- re-install the sword package
-- over-write the directory above with my backed up files. I think that will recover not only my notes, but also all the bibles that I have added.

Any thoughts on this?

Re: How can you back up your notes?

Yes, that sounds right. You actually don't even need to reinstall the package. Once you copy the folder to a backup drive, you can actually run it from there. The registry entries are unnecessary and are concessions for Windows installers/uninstallers
