How do I backup my mailing list data?

 

The procedure depends on the release you are using.

 

SendBlaster 2:

SendBlaster 2 keeps your data in the following folder:

 

MyDocuments\SendBlaster2

 

You just need to make a backup of this folder

 

SendBlaster 1:

SendBlaster 1 keeps  data in two subfolders:

 

(program folder)/data (program folder)/history 

 

where (program folder) means the directory where you installed the program. A typical path is:

 

C:/Program Files/SendBlaster/data C:/Program Files/SendBlaster/history

 

Therefore, if you want to backup your data, you simply have to backup these two subfolders. If you are using Windows Vista and have User Account Control (UAC) on, Vista uses virtualization; files are stored in a different path:

 

(user’s folder)/AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files/SendBlaster/data (user’s folder)/AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files/SendBlaster/history

where (user’s folder) means the directory where user data are stored. An example path for user named “John” is:

 

C:/Users/John/AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files/SendBlaster/data C:/Users/John/AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files/SendBlaster/history

 

Therefore, these are the folder you have to backup if you’re using Vista and have UAC on. If you turned UAC off, data are stored in the usual (program folder)\data and (program folder)\history folders, as for any previous Windows version.
