Exporting WinSCP saved session


It baffles me why WinSCP doesn’t have an “export saved sessions” button. Cause every time you reinstall your OS you have to through all the trouble of adding all the sites you ftp to.

Well i found that the sessions are store in the registry here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Sessions

So just run[Start > Run] this command to export all your sessions.

regedit /e c:\winscp.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Sessions"

This will save a registry file on your c: drive called winscp.reg. You can take this and run it on another computer and you should have all your store sessions back.

Thought that might be useful. Good luck
