[Solved] Back Up Tool Question

Post by twistedvincent » 2015-05-02, 18:59

I previously ran the backup tool from wherever without issue and restored previous backups to new installations. I just had to to a complete windows reinstall and attempted to restore a Pale Moon backup but the tool says "backup path not found" and it shuts down. I have not altered the installation path as it is still in program files. I checked the forum thread but it didn't address my issue. Can someone help?

Thanks....

Please make sure you select the proper path where the backups are stored (using the little folder icon) - this should display a list of previously-made backups in the list. Also, make sure you first select a backup in the list before clicking restore, otherwise the tool doesn't know what to restore ;)

I solved the problem. I hadn't run pale moon at least once to establish a profile folder....duh.
