Stanhope Posted April 11, 2018 Share Posted April 11, 2018 Here is a quick guide on how to create a backup for your arma profile and how to restore your profile from a backup.1: Creating a backup First you'll need to find the profile you want to back-up. Typically your profile will be stored at one of the following 2 locations: C:\Users\yourUser\Documents\Arma 3 C:\Users\yourUser\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\yourProfile In those folders you'll find these files: Yours will not have Stanhope in them but your profile name. Those 3 files contain all your profile settings/preferences/... Copy paste those files into a seperate folder, preferably not in a profile folder, for example: root, stan & Stanhope are 3 profiles I use, backup contains backups from those profiles. 2: Recovering your profile from a back-up: Locate where you saved those 3 files on your disk and copy paste them into your profile folder, overwriting any and all files with the same name. These folders can be located in: C:\Users\yourUser\Documents\Arma 3 (default profile) C:\Users\yourUser\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\yourProfile (custom profiles) 3: As a little bonus: If you want to copy a profile you can create a new one in arma and copy paste those 3 files into your new profile folder. Rename them so they have the same nickname and you copy pasted your profile. (There are a few other ways of doing this but this is how I do it.) Questions, comments, suggestions, ... bellow. PS: could someone move this to the guides section pretty please? Kacper 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
