How To Find, Backup And Restore Your TradeSkillMaster Settings



No one likes to lose all their hard work due to addons going haywire or other unfortunate events. We've been getting a lot of reports from reader and livestream viewers of TradeSkillMaster losing/destroying their carefully built TSM settings, groups, etc.

This video explains how to find your TradeSkillMaster setting files as well as how to backup and restore them if needed. The information on where to find these files was taken from the FAQ over at TradeSkillMaster.com.

While we all know we should backup our data, we often procrastinate. I've been trying to make a habit of using the TSM Application to backup my TSM files before I launch the Curse Client to update my addons.

  1. On the plus side, groups at least are easier to set up than they've ever been. The Quick Groups feature is a godsend, and I don't know how I ever lived without it.

    1. Glad it helped. While we don't give solid release dates for new podcasts, we are working to try to get one out at least every few weeks if not sooner. Our last podcast was just this last Friday.

  3. Thanks Jim. Was not aware that the app could do it for me as well. I have that setup now.
