New Computer | Transfer Preferences, User Settings, Presets

PostSun Oct 10, 2021 7:42 pm

I've figured out how to export and import databases and custom keyboard shortcuts, but how would you go about exporting or transferring user settings/preferences, presets, etc., to a new computer? I'm moving from a Windows 10 machine to a Windows 11 machine (using Resolve Studio).

I've found some presets and a file or two that seem to contain some preference settings in the standard "user", "AppData" area. But it would be good to know if there's an official way to do this before I start messily copying/editing these files. There seems to be a lot of information on exporting a database, but I couldn't find much on these user settings.

Well I ended up getting some of my presets from "AppData" files--a little tedious to find but it worked. Aside from importing databases and custom keyboard shortcuts, I ended up just redoing most things in Resolve. It would be great if it were possible to automate more of this.

Sorry to hear this news. A user preference master save would be a treat for such situations.
