[BUG] Version 2.05.255, Windows 7 (x64)
When creating My Apps folder trough the button in app, the app restarts but no folder is created.
When folder is created manually the app loads it correctly.
[Feature] Refresh button + F5 shortcut to reload Plug-ins/My Apps folder
I've come up with a workaround for the groups of app lists. I've created a batch script with options to select group. Groups are stored in Data\Groups\ e.g. Data\Groups\Group_AppConfigs.
First, the script simply removes any present "My Apps" link and after selecting option makes a symbolic link to the selected folder e.g.
@mklink /D "My Apps" "Data\Groups\Group_AppConfigs" > nul && Echo Successful
Some sample groups:
 Apps - Config Files // UI setup and other preferences
 Apps - Data // e.g. chat history or main.db from skype
 Games - Config Files // preferences e.g. keybinds etc.
 Games - Game Saves // saved games and game profiles
I imagine that exactly the same procedure could be used in the app, with simple dropdown menu to change group. Text files with lists of apps from plug-ins folder would be more efficient but copying of plug-ins is ok as folder size is not really worrying.
Currently I can very efficiently switch groups but I have to restart app to reload the list. Refresh button would be very handy. (Now refresh is called only on plug-in import)
[Feature] Parameter to not include sub-folders in BackupFolder, only files in top level
I've noticed that now it's possible to basically backup single file or more files into custom output folder (which works around the problem with overwriting single files) by including * at the end e.g.
The wildcard at the end is not 100% ideal for all cases but it works and that counts.
In the same manner "BackupFile | file | CustomOutput" could be implemented in the future.
I came across a weird situation and I don't know if I found a bug or it is supposed to be like that. When I click 'Restore' after selecting apps which I want to restore the program automatically selects all the other apps and restores them all. In my opionion it should restore only selected apps and that's why I think it is a bug. If I'm mistaken, may I ask you to consider changing it?
When this situation had happened to me I came across interesting idea. I would like to suggest a feature, which should be easy to implement, considering you have already implemented the restoring of data. It would be useful if CloneApp could reset the settings of apps. I mean deleting the files, which are listed in plugins.
Please let me know, what do you think about this :)
It seems that currently absolute paths are not working correctly. Full
path format as in "D:\...\.." would be very handy too. Also, would it be
possible, as someone mentioned here already, to GET correct
installation path from registry. This is very useful if apps are
installed on different drive than default and the paths are non-default
as well. E.g.
Get this correct path as variable and use it for backup. So we don't have to hard code plug-ins
great app! I've a few suggestions for future versions.
Custom output folder for single files. Currently if multiple files from
different folder but with the same filename are backed up, they get
overwritten and only last one is kept.
2) Backup of single registry key opposed to backing up all keys in "folder"
3) Cancel button in plug-in editor (ESC)
4) Custom selection preset - saving selected apps as a preset which can be later used to instantly select apps in this preset
Partial backup - sections in plug-in file which result in a list of
checkboxes in app selection (maybe new pane between app list and
description). Different sections can be (de)selected e.g. *all*,
"bookmarks", "config", "themes", "addons" as opposed to creating
multiple plug-ins e.g. "Firefox (bookmarks)", Firefox (addons)
Groups - groups with different visible apps in the app list. Similiar
to "personal plug-ins" folder but with multiple groups. Each folder
under personal plug-ins could be considered new group with plug-in
files. This would be redundant and better solution would be to just have
single file for each group with a list of plug-in names included in
Most important example would be group for
"Applications" and a group for "Games". Games would then be separated
with sections for "settings" and "saves". This could be further improved
to things like "backup this saves folder, but only # (e.g. 10) last
7) Backing up only if file is newer/different than backed up file
Really like Clone App and thank you for developing. I have trouble with writing a plugin for PhpStorm as its configuration is located inside folder which contains the program version number. Is it possible to back up folder with name ".PhpStorm*\config" where * is a version number (e.g. 2018.2)? My approach with * doesn't work.
CloneApp is a free and portable program for Microsoft Windows devices to back up preferences, settings and other data of supported applications. CloneApp is highly customizable and can a be extended via "plug-ins", plain text files which define exactly which files, folders and Registry keys the program should preserve.
It requires Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 or Vista, including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
