Last updated on 26 Jan 2004.

READ THIS. If you'd like to help us test iPodder 2.0beta1, we suggest that you back up your configuration in case you decide to revert back to version 1.1.4. Running 2.0beta1 will make changes to your configuration that will make it incompatible with the earlier version.

  1. Backup.

    Make a backup of your ipodder configuration data. You'll need this if you want to revert to your previous configuration.

    1. Quit iPodder
    2. Create a new directory into which you'll make backup copies.
    3. Locate your configuration directory.
      • Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\iPodder, or "%APPDATA%\iPodder"
      • Macintosh: /Users/username/iPodderData
    4. Copy these files from the configuration directory to the backup directory
      • favorites.txt
      • history.txt
      • iPodder.db (iPodder.db.db on Mac)
      • ipodder.cfg
      • schedule.txt
  2. Download and run.
