With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

Backup profiles?

Post by Vittorrio » Tue Nov 14, 2017 3:11 pm

Hi all,
I am hoping to get a decent upgrade for my computer and want to wipe my hard drive and start from scratch where windows is concerned. I was hoping someone could tell me how I can go about backing up my profiles in handbrake as I have them exactly how I want and it's a bit tedious having to input them all over again.
Is this even possible?
Thanks

Yes, but I don't remember where the presets file is stored under Windows. I'm sure someone will chime in eventually.

You can export them to files and save those; that process allows you to save them where ever you want.

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\HandBrake

Note, only when keeping the same version of HandBrake. Otherwise the only option is to redo presets as we don't currently support converting presets between versions
