Where is the Backup Job configuration file(s) located?

When you define a backup job, is the data for that store in a data file that I can view or edit in a text editor?

I could image that it my be an XML file or JSON or some other human-readable text format that I could edit or copy-paste to create new backup jobs.

Is this type of thing possible? If so, please direct me to the file locations.

It's a little more complex to parse all those raw settings that I imaged it would be. I can see your software has some really complex inner workings, so that is kind of comforting and also humbling, so I think I will leave the raw config files alone and stick with the UI interface.

There's a better and more accurate topic that covers this:
https://bvckup2.com/support/forum/topic/480

To clone a job you need to:

1. Create a backup-0xxx folder in engine\ folder, where xxx is a unique number.
2. Copy settings.ini from an existing job there

After that you can either restart the program or tell the program to load this new job using command-line control. See "Loading a new job" section here - https://bvckup2.com/support/forum/topic/411.

Also, if you just need to make a one-off job clone, you can do it in the UI via the right-click menu for an existing job.
