How can I backup and restore my Remote Buddy preferences?

Create a backup of your preferences:

  1. Quit Remote Buddy (click on the Remote Buddy Symbol in the menu bar and select "Quit").
  2. Enter killall cfprefsd into Terminal.app and hit return.
  3. Create a new folder (henceforth called "backup folder").
  4. Copy all files whose names start with "com.iospirit.remotebuddy" or "com.iospirit.RemoteBuddy" from [your home folder]/Library/Preferences/ to the backup folder.
  5. You can now launch Remote Buddy again.
