    Thanks, Dan. This is a great tutorial, and if I would have copied the settings over before my desktop’s HD was wiped, this would’ve come in handy.

    Just an addon: If you’re using FileZilla 2, the config info is in C:\Program Files\FileZilla\FileZilla.xml (if you chose to save the config files in XML during installation). Might be good for those follks that needed to revert back to version 2 because of the trouble in keeping a connection alive in FileZilla v3.
    Thanks for the tutorial though. It’s pages like this that are the only true fixes for computer problems. Thanks :)

      Thanks for the v2 tip. :) I wasn’t aware there were differences.

  5. Once I put passwords in the file manager, I tend to lose them or forget them. And then when it’s time to move to a new computer (like now) I have to reconfigure dozens of them. Thanks so much!

    Just found this today, and it’s an absolute life saver! Also, for those of us on Mac/Linux, you can put the sitemanager in dropbox, and put a symlink to it in your .filezilla folder. Instant sync between computers (just make sure you don’t have FileZilla open on more than one computer at a time if you’re paranoid about potentially overwriting things).

    I assume it would work with NTFS links as well, but I’m not as familiar with their usage so I couldn’t say for certain.

      That’s a great idea! I didn’t even think of symlinks.

    Nowadays you could just Export xml file of your Site Manager by selecting “File>Export” then select all (at your wish), then select a path to store the file. Copy that file on to the other machine. Now open Filezilla and then “File>Import” and the select the stored file. You are done!!!

    I’m a bit confused, the title says transferring files between computers but at the ‘second’ step you tell me to input my site details. What would that be? A little more detail for noobs would be helpful. Thanks.

    Perfecto, running a Mac and seeing how to show the hidden files was a bonus to seeing how to get the xml settings for Filezilla.
