    Hi there, if you are talking about making another user have the same sites/profiles available, the files you need to move are stored in the application directory - likley C:\documents and settings\<username>\application data\ipswitch\WSFTP-Pro\Sites  - copy the .ini files in this directory to the same directory for another user, and their environment should appear the same.  You will need to set windows explorer to show hidden files or you will not be able to see these folders - to do this, go into Tools menu -> Folder Options -> View -> Show Hidden Files and Folders.

    Hope this helps!

    It depends on the OS. On my Windows 7 machine, the site profiles are located in Users\All Users\Ipswitch\WS_FTP\Sites. In Windows XP, you can replace Users with Documents and Settings, but you normally find sites in All Users because WS_FTP typically installs for anyone to use. ... Thinkpads_User
