Backing Up and Restoring SecureCRT® and SecureFX® Settings (versions 7.3 and newer)
Note: For instructions for SecureCRT and SecureFX 7.2 and earlier, see this tip.
Backing up your configuration is a recommended best practice. When trying out a new version of SecureCRT or SecureFX, a backup allows you to revert to a “known good” setup if you make a configuration change you don't like. You can also use a backup when
moving to a new machine to transfer your current configuration so you don’t waste
time recreating sessions. Or maybe you just want to play it safe; almost everyone knows someone
who has lost important data as a result of a computer crash.
7.3 and newer versions of SecureCRT and SecureFX include an import/export tool that makes it easier to create a backup or copy configuration settings from one machine to another.
Create a backup file
On the Windows, Mac, or Linux system, run SecureCRT or SecureFX and select Export Settings from the Tools menu.
Choose the folder location and specify a name for the XML file that will be created (e.g., SCRTConfig.xml).
The backup XML file will now be available in the location selected in Step 2 above.
