Hi, I am soon going to switch PC and as preparation for this I am investigating how I might transfer the 'Recent Files' list to the new PC. The list provedes a valuable record of recent (and not so recent) work and I would really miss it on the new PC, should I start all over. So, can I find a file somewhere in the JMP folders, that contains this list? Or is it a data table? Or ?

Regards

Hi Poul,

Check your Windows registry using regedit.

I think you'll find it there and can export it and reimport it on the new machine.

Be careful with regedit though.

As Jeff says, it's in the registry so tread lightly. You should be able to export HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SAS Institute Inc.\JMP\Recent\Files to a .reg file and Import that on the new machine. If your files are on drives with the same letter and in the same folders it should work.
