I'm an Fbackup newbie, so please excuse any naive questions.
I've spent a considerable amount of time constructing my first backup job and I don't want to have to repeat that process if something goes wrong. I would like to backup the structure of the backup job, i.e. the file and folder names

that are to be included in the backup job. Is it the .fkc file, what I believe you folks call the catalog file, that contains that information? If that's correct and I save that file, could I import it into Fbackup to recreate the backup job?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Yes, the .fkc catalog file is the one you need to re-create the backup job in FBackup.

You can back up the FBackup jobs and settings using the predefined plugin.

Thanks admin that helps a lot. I have looked but have been unable to find the plugin for FBackup jobs and settings. It doesn't seem to be in my installation or on the plugin page (http://www.backup4all.com/en/backup-plugins.html) for FBackup. What exactly is it called? Did I miss it somehow?

Hi,
The plugin is "FBackup configurations" and it can be found in the FBackup installation folder, under Plugins subfolder.

I have FBackup v. 4.6 build 260. The only items in the Plugins folder are:
MyDocuments.xml

MyPictures.xml

OutlookExpressSources.dll

WindowsMail.xml
Sorry this is taking up so much of your time.

Hi,
Don't you have it in the installation folder of FBackup?
