Introducing PowerBackup

PowerBackup is a tool for backing up and restoring your Blender and addon preferences.

What does PowerBackup do?

It backs up chosen Blender and addon preferences to json files inside an archive, and lets you choose which items you want to restore.

When loading an addon's preferences, it'll enable the addon for you.

It can backup and restore your preferences in just a few clicks.

Couldn't I do this manually?

Yes and no.

You can manually copy userpref.blend and startup.blend from appdata, which will contain all of your preferences.

But if you want to restore some preferences while leaving others intact, you'll need this tool.

Who is this for?

This tool, like the other products in its line, is the most useful for power users: people who use addons, or otherwise customize their blender experience.

Why did you make this?

Setting up preferences and addons can take a lot of time, which I would rather spend modeling.
