Is it possible to extract previous formatting from files after new OS install

Post by 619annamalc »

My main HD got corrupted and it affected the operating system. I needed to install a new HD and new OS.

I had custom formats for movies and tv shows based on a lot of digging through forums and putting various strings together (i.e. collection, verision/edition, IMDB ID #, resolution, audio track, etc.).

Is there a way to extract the filebot format used on a title which was previously edited? If not, I will just need to refigure everything out.

Yes, FileBot will export all your settings (from the Windows Registry; assuming you're using Windows) once per month into a file named preferences.backup.xml in the %APP_DATA%/FileBot (assuming you're using the MSI package) folder.
