    Hi Folks,

    How does one backup an RSSOwl profile? I use WinXP, Win 7, and OS X?

    Cheers,

    Rev

    Hi Rev

    You can backup your RSSOwl profle by just copying/zipping/… the .rssowl2
    folder. You can find it:

    Windows 7: C:/Users/<your.name>/.rssowl2

    Windows Vista: C:/Users/<your.name>/.rssowl2

    Windows XP: C:/Documents and Settings/<your.name>/.rssowl2

    Linux: <home.dir>/.rssowl2

    Mac: <home.dir>/.rssowl2

    .rssowl2/.metadata/.plugins/org.rssowl.core contains the database itself (with
    all feeds, news, news filters, saved searches, …). The other folders in
    .rssowl2 just contain some feed list backups, log files and UI preferences.
