Copying X1 Settings to new computer

Postby mbdiener » Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:02 pm


I am replacing the laptop on which I run X1 Professional. I believe the best thing to do is to install X1 and reindex when I have all the files copied over to the new computer. However, I am wondering how to copy over my X1 settings such as custom searches, screen setup, etc.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Custom searches sit in a folder called "Saved Searches".

You can safely copy these between installations. Anything else is down to copying xml files in the folder above that that holds the "Saved Searches".

X1 doesn't support moving these, more's the pity, but I have found that it pays to experiment with these if you want to retain things like carefully arranged "search trees".
X1 Search 8.6.1 - Build 6003fa (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.
