CloneApp Rules

CloneApp uses Plug-ins to add support for programs it will back up in Windows.

CloneApp is based on an INI Engine to determine which Applications and Windows configuration files to Backup and/or Restore and how to do that. INI files are simple text files with plain text, so you can edit them with Notepad. CloneApp brings by default already pre-configured Plug-ins for dozen popular Applications. To extend CloneApp’s functionality you can create your own Plug-ins.

This is the core of the Firefox plugin, for instance.

[Info]
Title=Mozilla Firefox
Version=Compatible with all Versions
Description=Backup complete Mozilla Firefox Profile in AppData directory.
Author=Mirinsoft
AuthorURL=http://www.mirinsoft.com

[Files]
Task=TaskKill|firefox.exe|WARNING
File1=BackupFile|%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini
File2=BackupFolder|%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

This will back up the profile folder as specified, and it can be customized with more folders, Registry keys, even optionally run custom commands as required.

E.g. Plug-in to back up the Firefox Favorites

[Info]
Title=Mozilla Firefox (Bookmarks only)
Version=Compatible with all Versions
Description=Backup Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks.
Author=Mirinsoft
AuthorURL=http://www.mirinsoft.com

[Files]
File1=BackupFile|$FirefoxProfile$\places.sqlite
File2=BackupFolder|$FirefoxProfile$\bookmarkbackups

It’s a simple idea.

Everything you need to know about Plug-ins can be read in the CloneApp documentation.

CloneApp is a free and portable program for Microsoft Windows devices to back up preferences, settings and other data of supported applications. CloneApp is highly customizable and can a be extended via "plug-ins", plain text files which define exactly which files, folders and Registry keys the program should preserve.

It requires Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 or Vista, including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
