Saving favourites between LaunchBox installs

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I have LaunchBox installed on more than one device but want them to use the same favourites playlist, is this possible?

It would be really nice if I lose a hard drive or something , when I reinstall LB my favourites are still there.

Thanks,

Your Playlists are saved under ../LaunchBox/Data/Playlists   So I'm pretty confident that you can simply copy the one (or the whole folder) over to the other machine, start that LaunchBox (because LB was not running when you copied them ;) ) and be good to go.

Yeah just copying your whole Launchbox/Data folder should "just work".

Great, I'll give this a go, thank you.

Also backup your data folder, Launchbox will do this automatically, but its always good to have it NOT on the same drive for a true backup.

How does LB do this automatically and where is it backing it up to? Thanks.

Look under your "Launchbox/Backups" folder. There will be a bunch of ZIP files. Unzip the newest file and place the contents in the "Data" folder.
