Copying TOAD Settings

One of the most common TOAD questions we hear is, How do I copy all my TOAD settings from one machine to another? In older versions of TOAD, that process used to be difficult, as the files were not all collected in a central location. Now it's quite simple: Just zip up the directory where all your specific settings are kept—namely, C:\Documents and Settings\%USER%\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\User Files.

Note that some files may be encrypted using your source machine's login information. In this case, copying the password file from one machine to another will not allow you to use those passwords unless the target machine has the same login (i.e., the directory structure is identical). Other than this exception, the remaining files and their settings should port without problem.
