Which files/folders to move going from Beta to GA?


#1

Age-old question since the beginning of Toad Beta. Normally, I would just use the new GA’s settings and environment as upgraded from my last GA, but this time I have a lot of work done in the Beta that I’d like to keep (yes, I regularly backup my Toad App Data dir off to a USB drive!).

I’ve moved my “ImpExp” dir that I created in the App Data directory, as well as CONNECTION*, SavedSQL.dat, and the Databases directory. I think I’ve got most everything I need…anything major I might be overlooking? Or maybe a better question is “What should I never copy over?” or even “What should I avoid copying over if I can help it?”.

With my project addled brain, I’ve come to a full stop at this point and thought I should maybe just ask… [B]

TIA!

I think you will be just fine importing all of your files from beta to GA. You can import/export all settings via Utilities > Copy user settings.

Well, to be fair, the imp/exp functionality in copy user settings wasn’t added until 12.5… if that makes you feel any better.

@Brad,

I have Toad 11.6 version which has this menu and exactly the same functionality…if I didn’t understand something wrong!?

Damir,

11.6 has the ability to copy user settings from a previous installation, which probably will suffice in this case.

12.5 introduced the ability to zip/export and unzip/import to any location
