Backing up your settings (How to...)

As of version 1.2.3, SMTPing doesn't come with a backup utility, but here's how you can manually backup data files.

Important: this procedure applies to SMTPing using SQLite. If you decide to go over MySQL using an existing server, you'll have to manually dump the MySQL database in order to back it up.

1. Open a Windows Explorer window and go to SMTPing's application data folder:

2. From that directory, there are three files to backup:

3. That's all! If you uninstall and reinstall SMTPing, just restore those files to the specified locations.

Note 1: those three files aren't replaced when updating SMTPing.
Note 2: the GOTD release doesn't have the license file. That's hardcoded.
