    Posted: 15 Jun 2014 at 7:24pm
Transviz did not include a bunch of directories in my user profiles. At least from the one I found, all of them start with dots: .ssh, .unison, .VirtualBox, ...

Fortunately I additionally did a backup on my own and could copy these directories manually.

First question: Now I am a little bit afraid that Transviz could possible exclude other files as well. Is there anything known that Transviz ignores?

Second question: This seems like a bug to me (if it is intended it would be great to document it or make it configureable) to it would be great if it would be fixed.

Third (not directly related): Transviz also takes all the stuff from AppData/Local and AppData/LocalLow. IMHO these directories are not intended to be backuped/saved because they only contain temporary files/caches. If it is done intentionally, making this configureable would be great as well!

Hi,

There is a problem with dot-directories. Thanks for pointing this out. We will get this fixed in the next release build.

We cannot agree with you about the AppData/Local and AppData/LocalLow folders. The whole point about Transwiz is to move user data and settings. These folders contain critical user data and settings and have to be included in the backup.
