Use bookmarks/saved searches after re- install.

Post by Lasco »

Hi,

because I re-installed of my OS I had to re-install NL as well, v7.0Beta.
Before, I saved the entire Appdata folder for NL.

Is there a way to use my bookmarks (saved supersearches) in the new install?
Wich file do I use from the saved dir and where do I put it?

Looking forward to an answer,
thanks

Lasco

I don't know for sure, but logically I would assume you should restore the supersearch.v?.dat file and/or supersearch.v?.cache folder.

Thanks for the reply,

I tried to copy the supersearch.v5.dat file to the Appdata NL dir but that didn't do the trick.
Tried to copy this file to different places in the Appdata NL dir but not doing anything.
Also tried it together with the cache folder but nothing again.

Have strange issues with NL though, screen turns black if I try to use a button....??

Should have searched the forum a little better. Don't know what the rest of the .dat files and the supersearch files do but the only file you need is setup.v2.dat.

Copy the old setup.v2.dat in your Appdata NL folder and all your bookmarks, filters, etc are restored.
If you would like to know what you have downloaded so far, also copy downloaded.v2.dat in the same folder.
