    I have an installation of RSS Bandit on one computer. Now I installed RSS
    Bandit on a different computer.

    How do I move my state from the old to the new computer?

    Note: I am not talking about the list of subscriptions, you can trivially do
    that through OPML, I am talking about the downloaded articles, their
    read/unread status and so on. The content if you will.

    Youn can just copy the whole folder at your personal windows folder located in
    "Documents and Settings", or "Users", named "RssBandit" to the new machine
    (same location, but dependent on your new OS).

    Thanks! Worked perfectly!

    Note: on modern systems (at least Windows 7, but probably Vista also), the old


    folder is actually split into two:




    ) and




    ). There is an


    folder in both of those, and you need to copy both of them. If you copy to
    an older system (i.e. Windows XP), just copy both of them to


    and merge their contents.
