SYMPTOMS

By default, Genie Backup Manager (GBM) stores the backup job information and catalog files under the following directory:

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Genie-Soft

AppData is a hidden folder.

 

RESOLUTION

  1. Close GBM.
  2. Press the Windows + R keys on your keyboard in order to open the Run dialog → Type regedit and hit Enter. This will open the Windows Registry Editor.
  3. Go to the following key, where %PRODUCT% is the GBM edition you are using (Pro, Home, or  Server):
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Genie-Soft\GBM%PRODUCT%8\Main
  4. Double-click the AppDataPathType and change its Value to 1.

  5. Double-click the AppDataPath → In the Value field, place the new path where you want to start saving GBM’s data → OK.
  6. Close the Windows Registry Editor.
  7. Open GBM.

For example, if the new path you selected is the D:\Catalog as shown in the screenshot above, once you open GBM, you will notice that it starts saving the new job’s settings and catalog files under:

D:\Catalogs\Genie-soft\GBM%PRODUCT%8\Jobs

So, if you already have data under the following old path:

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Genie-Soft\GBM%PRODUCT%8\Jobs

You can copy them from there and add them to the same Jobs folder under the new directory.
