Where does Langmeier Backup store its data?

If you have ever wondered where Langmeier Backup actually stores its data such as settings and backup jobs, you will find the appropriate information here. Note that these folders re mostly hidden, which means you have to make them visible first. Only then can you navigate to these folders. Or enter the correct folder path directly in the address line of Windows Explorer - this way the folder contents will also be visible.

The backup jobs are stored here by default:

C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\Langmeier Software\Backup

The planning jobs are stored in this file:

C:\UsersAppData\Roaming\Langmeier Software\atb3.dta

Langmeier Backup stores certain settings in the registry, the key to do this is:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Langmeier Software\Langmeier Backup

Note: If you want to uninstall Langmeier Backup to reinstall it afterwards, you should export the settings from the  registry and import them back into the registry after reinstallation. Use the registry editor "regedit.exe" (Click on "Start" and enter "regedit" there). The backup jobs (among other things, it says what is backed up where), remain saved in any case even after an uninstall.


When running as a Windows service

If Langmeier Backup is operated as a Windows service, then everything is stored in a different location, because here the settings apply globally to all Windows users and not only - as above - to a single user.

The backup jobs are located at:

C:\ProgramData\Langmeier Software\Backup

The planning jobs are then stored here:

C:\ProgramData\Langmeier Software\atb3.dta

Data in the windows registry is then located at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Langmeier Software\Langmeier Backup

On 64bit Windows systems, this registry path is in a slightly different location, at: 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Langmeier Software\Langmeier Backup

Note: To read this path in the registry, you may need elevated Windows permissions.


Programmed scripts

Any VB scripts programmed for Langmeier Backup are always located at:

C:\ProgramData\Langmeier Software\Scripts
