locked Configuration Backup


Gilbert Baron
 

I have messed up SO MANY times with configurations.

After spending hours getting it the way I want IU try to make a backup of current settings.

 

All my other windows programs work by  Select a file Then Backup. This clone thing has me totally confused and I HATE it with a passion. 

 

I know, it probably will not change but perhaps if I knew where the current settings were stored I could back up that file manually and then restore it so I do not have to go through the process again. There a re a LOT of things to configure  😊

I believe the setting are saved in WSJT-X.ini in the same directory as the .log & .adi files

Gil,

I don't understand your confusion, the location of the WSJT-X settings file is specified in the WSJT-X User Guide:

i'd say that the clone config is not really so much a "Backup" as it is a copy to make it easier to use multiple similar radios, you gt your settings the way you want for th first radio, clone the config, thn you instantly have a config you can use with a couple of tweaks like telling it which port to use for CAT and audio... this is so you can run multiple instances of the software at th same time, you can't run multiple instances for instance with the "Default" config, but you could with Radio 0, Radio 1, or HF, V/UHF...
