Move setup to new computer

I just bought a new computer. How do I copy my current setup to the new computer? I have setup several connections and I don’t want to do it all again.

Thanks.

Hi~ @Philip_Man,

The connected drive information is recorded in the registry.

  1. Click the Search button in the Taskbar and type regedit. If it is found, it is executed.

  2. Go to “Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OpenBoxLab\RaiDrive\Drives”.
    Then, right-click the Drives folder in the file tree on the left and click Export to save the reg file where drive information is saved.

  3. After installing RaiDrive, double-click the reg file you saved before running it, and click the Yes button to save the drive information to RaiDrive. When you launch RaiDrive, the drive you’ve connected to appears in RaiDrive.

Thanks so much! Works great!

Hi,
Is there a way to make it work between versions? I’m moving from 8.1 to Win 10 and the regedit import populates the registry values in 10 but the drive details do not appear. in the UI…
Thanks

Hi~ @Frank_Dittmar ,

To move the drive list to another PC, press the Sign In button and use the Export/Import function.

Hi,
that option does not exist in my Win 8.1 version (it does in the Win 10 one). Only option I have there is 1. Sign Out and 2. Upgrade to Professional

I’m using Educational Edition 2020.6.80 and it says it’s the latest version with no update available.

thanks

Hi~ @Frank_Dittmar ,

You can use it by updating from the attached link.

Yes, downloading the ‘standard edition’ from there does update my 8.1 and allows the export.
Importing the .dat file twice gave error: Padding is invalid and can’t be removed BUT it did work on the 3rd attempt…
Looks ok for now - thanks for the help.

Hi, I’ve tried following the regedit method and it doesn’t seem to work at this moment. After importing the .reg, I launch RaiDrive and instead of showing the drives I imported via .reg, it shows the same drives again, when I refresh regedit it shows that RaiDrive replaced everything with the values from before I imported the .reg.

To be clear, here’s what I did: I stopped RaiDrive and its service, went to regedit (Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\OpenBoxLab\RaiDrive\Drives), (deleted any existing values in Drives), imported the .reg file and regedit shows the values were imported successfully, started RaiDrive and its service, RaiDrive shows the same drives and regedit shows RaiDrive removed what I had imported via .reg and reinstated the previous values in the Drives key.

I’m trying to migrate from an old Win10 installation and I need one of the drive accounts in my old Win10 that I forgot the email of.

Win10 for both installations, same PC, both versions installed are/were 2022.3.30. Not logged in on both (I think I never created an account on the old installation, almost sure but can’t recall), both using RaiDrive Standard Edition. Thanks for any help!

Hi~ @Matt_Kauffman ,

Please update to the latest version and use the Export/Import function.
If the issue persists, please tell us again.

I can’t do that because the old Windows 10 installation with the old RaiDrive configuration I’m trying to restore is bricked, the OS was bricked by a Windows Update and the OS won’t launch, that’s why I’m migrating.

Is there any other way to restore the RaiDrive drives configuration? If not, a way to even just see the email logins I had used? Thanks again.

Hi~ @Matt_Kauffman ,

You cannot add a list of previously used drives with regedit.
Unfortunately, if you do not use the Export/Import function, you cannot check the list of previously connected drives.

Alright, thanks for the help.
