USB-stick

Postby Mjolnaren » Thu Oct 04, 2012 9:09 am

Your IncrediMail Version: 2.0
Your Internet Browser Type: FireFox 3.5
Your Operation System: Windows 7

What have you done before the problem occurred?
I move the complete Incredimail between my two computers and back and forth and back .....

If you receive any error message, please quote it precisely:


Please provide a full description of the problem:
Is it possibly to have Incredimail installed on an USB-stick instead of moving the whole program and messages between my two computers?

To transfer your IncrediMail data and settings, please do the following:
Click here to download and install the latest version from our site.

Once you have downloaded and installed the latest version, open IncrediMail, click the 'File' menu, scroll to 'Data and Settings Transfer Wizard' and select 'Export Data and Settings...'

Click 'Next' to create the 'IncrediMail Data.cab' file.

Save this file and copy it to your new computer.

To retrieve your IncrediMail data and settings after a computer format, to a new computer, or to a new IncrediMail installation, open IncrediMail, click the 'File' menu, scroll to 'Data and Settings Transfer Wizard' and select 'Import Data and Settings...'. Kindly proceed by clicking 'Next', browse into the directory where the '.cab' file is located and select the ‘IncrediMail Transferred Data’ folder (marked in red) and simply choose the 'Next' option..

As the export function has been removed in the latest build of IncrediMail 2.5 due to various problems with the transfer wizard, to manually backup the IncrediMail data, please do the following:
 
1. Exit the IncrediMail application by right-clicking on the icon in your Windows taskbar and selecting "Exit".

2. In Windows Explorer, browse to the following location:
C:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Local\IM

Note: YOURUSER refers to your actual Windows user. As the "AppData" folder may sometimes be hidden, for instructions on how to show hidden files and folders in Windows 7, please refer to the Microsoft article at:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... dden-files

3. Copy the "Identities" folder to your chosen backup location.
 
To later import the backup, please do the following:

1. Copy the "Identities" folder from the backup location to your Desktop.

2. Open IncrediMail, click on File > Import and Export > Import Messages.

3. In the pop-up window, select "IncrediMail" and click on Next.

4. Click "Select Folder" and browse to the "Identities" folder located on your Desktop. Click on Next.

5. Select the option "All Folders". Click on Next.

6. When complete, click on Finish.

7. In the main IncrediMail window, click on File > Import and Export > Import Contacts.

8. In the pop-up window, select "IncrediMail Address Book" and click on Next.

9. Click "Select Folder" and browse to the "Identities" folder located on your Desktop. Click on Next.

10. When complete, click on Finish.

Please let me know if you encounter any difficulties.
