Moving SmartFTP data to new computer

Post by Jordan Bradford » Wed Jun 22, 2016 4:31 pm

I had SmartFTP 5.0.1364.0 (32-bit) running on a Windows Vista computer and that computer no longer works. I have connected its hard drive to my new computer which runs Windows 10 and I've installed SmartFTP 8.0.2226.0 (64-bit).

​How do I move my SmartFTP data (configuration settings, favorites, license key, etc.) to the new computer? Is it simply a matter of copying everything in the old hard drive's

Code: Select all

%appdata%\SmartFTP\Client 2.0\
 directory to the same location on the new computer?

​This is potentially complicated by the fact that I'm not only moving SmartFTP's data to a new computer, I'm also upgrading SmartFTP​ from an old 32-bit build to the newest 64-bit build.

Yes, copying this folder will transfer the most important data: the favorites.
The registry settings (history, UI settings) are non-transferable from 32-bit to 64-bit.
