SIMconfigBackup

SIMconfigBackup_LogoGeneral

SIMconfigBackup is a small to to create backups of your important flightsimulator configuration files. The idea of the software came up as a AddOn installation fully reordered my scenery.cfg. I decided that it would have been a good idea to had have a backup… ;O)

Features

  • Native support of FS9, FSX, FSX-SE, P3Dv1, P3Dv2, P3Dv3 and P3Dv4
  • Create unlimited BackupSets for different requirements (e.g. all your panel.cfg prior a aircraft update)
  • Add files by wildcard (e.g. „*.cfg“ or „aircraft.cfg“ in .\SimObjects)
  • Add source directorys
  • Restore one file or multiple files of a backup
  • SaveCopy to create backup of target files (e.g. for PREPAR3D Hotfixes)

Default BackupSets included

The BackupSet just include these files if they are availible when the BackupSet will be created first time (or by clicking at „File > Restore BackupSets“). Beside these default Sets you are able to create your own BackupSets.
