I'm migrating from a Win XP machine running SmartFTP 4.0.1228.0 to a Win8 machine running SmartFTP 4.1.1314.0.


On the old computer I used the SmartFTP Backup Tool to backup my favorites, commands, layout, etc., which produced a zip file. Now on the Win8 machine I am unable to restore those settings, mostly because I cannot find the backup tool on the newer version of SmartFTP. Does it exist? All I am able to find is a way to backup my favorites via a .dat file.

The backup tool has been discontinued. To import your favorites from an old backup zip:
1. Extract the backup zip
2. Extract the Favorites.zip
3. Copy the extracted files from the Favorites.zip to %appdata%\SmartFTP\Client 2.0\Favorites
