Posted on 2011-04-30

I have use CuteFTP for several years and I have set up many FTP sites. Some way my site manager contents have all disappeared. Fortunately (??) I have a site manager on another computer that is in tact. I tried to solve the problem  by simply copying the good sm.dat file into the appropriate folder in the other computer, but it doesn't work. There does not seem to be export and import functions. Can someone help me? I don't want to have to set up all the connections manually.

I use WindowsXP.

    I also use CuteFTP.

    First you need to close all connections.

    Click tools, site manager, import/export.

    From there you can import and export all of your sites including credentials.

    Let me know if you have any problems.

    I exported to the following file SitesAsTXT.txt, but I couldn't find how to import it. I choose import but the screen I get then doesn't seem right. and the button "begin conversion" is grayed out.
