OK, this is what I want to do. I have a newshosting premium account with unlimited access and I am using Newsleecher client version 3.0 final to get my files. I paid for a one year subscription with super search.
The problem I keep having with the client...is that anytime I upgrade to another version...or I reformat my computers hard drive...or newsleecher just goes banannas.....I keep LOSING the SETTINGS for a particular server that I have created in newsleecher under the Usenet Mgr. tab.
For example, if I join a group and download a lot of files, newsleecher keeps up with what files I have downloaded, what groups I have joined,etc.
But when I have something happen to my computer and newsleecher becomes corrupted in some way, then I usually have to join all the groups I had all over again and remember what files I had downloaded before from which group, because newsleecher only keeps stored what settings you have on a certian server. But if that server becomes corrupted or unuseable and you have to delete it and create a NEW server...then all of my old info is LOST!
What I need to know...is if there is ANY way to backup to a disk, all the information newsleecher remembers about a particular server...including the port you used, the address, the groups you belong to and the files you have already downloaded? If anyone knows the answer to this, PLEASE POST! I am new to newsgroups, but there must be some way to backup the settings of a server you use in newsleecher. That way, if something happens to your computer...you can restore those settings easily.
Anyone know how I do this? It is VERY ANNOYING having to re-create a server and pick out groups to subscribe to and the settings it had just because your computer is acting up!
