Default Custom data file locations

Custom data file locations

FlashFXP allows administrators and advanced power users to define a custom folder location for each individual data file.

Our flexible configuration should be able to satisfy any requirements or company policy on file data storage, and if it doesn't please contact us and we will help you reach your goals.

We see the following question asked quite frequently:

How can I share the Site Manager connection profiles with multiple users on multiple computers, while at the same time keeping individual application settings personalized to each user?

1. Install FlashFXP on each individual computer.

2. Add a new registry entry on each computer for sites.dat with the value pointing to network shared location. If any of the site profiles require x.509 certificates or RSA/DSA keys as part of the login verification then the cert.dat can be shared as well, however if each user is required to have their own personal certificates/keys then keep it local.

These settings are configured via the windows registry and requires administrative permissions.

On 32-bit versions of Windows the location is:

On 64-bit versions of Windows the location is:

Add a new String value (REG_SZ) with the name as (insert the filename from the list below) and with a value set to the desired location of the data file.

You can use system environment-variable like %ALLUSERSPROFILE% or %APPDATA% in the value.

List of file names and what we store in it.
FlashFXP.ini The core application configuration and preferences.
Sites.dat All the site manager connection profiles.
Quick.dat All the quick connect connection profiles.
Favorite.dat The Highlight masks/color settings. Filters > Highlights
bookmarks.dat All the folder bookmarks associated with a connection profile.
cmdv2.dat User defined custom commands.
Stats.dat All connection profile statistics (connection count, bytes transferred, etc)
Skiplist.dat The global skip list entries. Filters > Skip List
schedule.dat The task entry settings associated with a Scheduled Task.
cert.dat The x.509 certificates (FTP-SSL) and RSA/DSA keys (SFTP) associated with a connection profile.
flashfxp.key The FlashFXP product license key.

These settings do not apply to the USB portable or U3 portable editions of FlashFXP.
