Toad 5.5 loses all of you previously saved Connections??

I just installed the update to Toad 5.5 and now all of the connections that I have made and saved over the last year are gone.

Is there a way to recover them? Please?

It seems to me that migration was not succeed for some reason - you didn’t chose that option at first start or there was an issue.
Please kick of it once again -

  1. close TSS 5.5
  2. drop or rename your 5.5 Application Data folder (available from the Help|About form)
  3. start TSS - migration dialog should appears. Select proper previous version you want to migrate.
    All options including server registration should be migrated.

Also you can export needed servers from previous version as Toad XML file (see Connection Manager) and import them to 5.5.

Alex, I just pick up and copy the connections.xml file from 5.0 release or 5.5.
beta to the desktop of somewhere safe. Then after the install and before and the
migration I exit from Toad-ss and then copy in the save connections.xml file to
the correct folder. This has always worked …

So bottom Line I always make a copy of my connections.xml file before a Toad-SS
reload and especially before a uninstall. Works every time.

The same on my side, but I prefer to give advises in common user scenarios of
Toad utilization. Operation with files is for advanced Toad users like you :wink:
