Single Plugin Broken
If you simply install this app via Chocolatey, then either run the plugin import or even manually download and extract the single plugin offered (product keys from Nirsoft)......it refuses to launch.
My guess is, like the poorly written path code something is hardcoded assuming the app is installed somewhere other than where Chocolatey installs it and therefore renders your plugin path code broken when it calls to "ExternalPlug" path in the plg file.

I'm sorry I usually support free efforts like this however this is just a flat-out DANGEROUS app the way it is written.
Right off the bat when you simply miss including MANUALLY a trailing backslash to the backup path, basic path checking has not even been coded and the app literally BLINDLY appends it's data to whatever the user puts....so if you put C:\Temp all your backup folders are C:\TempAppName, etc. Add in that the basic compression setting (there are alll but a handful of settings this app needs to even handle) the code is backwards so you are enabling the compression settings only when it is UNCHECKED - so as of now it is impossible to actually set the compression levels.
After seeing these two very lazy things that should have NEVER slipped through basic testing combined with at least a dozen totally incomplete apps I personally had and now from also reading these reviews and see that most also experience totally broken restored apps, I'd say this app has a VERY long way to go and you should really open-source it to get some other DEV eyes and hands on it.
A+ for effort as we do need an app like this but a real shame it just doesn't cut it.

Is cloning legal?
Other than doing a full backup I know of no other software that will let you move a program from one PC to another. How do you get around the legality of licensing issues (since many programs are licensed for only one PC)?

Prblem with "Everything" and &am
1. Everything (Voidtools)
Cloneapp only clones "Bookmarks.csv" and "Everything.ini" but ignores "Filters.csv"., Search History.csv and Run History.csv.
I added those files in the updated plugin and they were successfully cloned. Then when restoring, they were restored but upon opening Everything, those 3 settings were not restored.
2. In Potplayer, I noticed that keyboard shortcuts were not restored.

Better registry control
I would like an option to only backup the main key and not do a recursive search export.
There are cases where I don't want to backup A,B,or C just the main key.

Auto Detect installed software
As this program, hopefully, grows to 1000's of items you need to offer the options to just backup settings for installed apps.
Here are the registry keys.

I backed up QBitTorrent data with CloneApp, but I discovered it does not back up 'resume data', meaning I had to re-import and, even more time consuming (days), re-check all my torrents. Only the app settings were saved.
I think users would be incredibly appreciative if you added that portion of the app's data.
Resume data is stored in %localappdata%\qbittorrent\. For your convenience, I believe this is the correct code to add for that: File4=BackupFolder|%LocalAppData%\qBittorrent

Not all of profile cloned
1st of all thank you for a very useful app.
I tried to clone the Waterfox profile, as follows:
CloneApp has not copied all the files in that folder. Why not?
I am on a Win 8.1/64-bit machine
