This is a brilliant app but I am struggling with usage: I have saved my Outlook settings - changed the custom ribbon and then restored to confirm that all is working correctly. However, the custom changes remained - I expected the original (saved) setup to be restored. Have I misunderstood or done something wrong. Any advice appreciated.

Hi Peter,

thanks for using CloneApp. The Outlook custom ribbon settings are not backed up. I'm not sure where these are store. @dennislundberg Are you sure? I'll come back to it agaian when I have time

All the best

If you are using Outlook to connect to an Exchange server, then some of the settings are stored in Exchange. I'm not sure if this includes the ribbon though.

I am a software developer with a complex SOHO environment.
I have three workstations and an HP server (rack) for testing and development.
I have around 16 Host OS SSDs - and 3 core images that I use for development,
besides numerous server images.

Your application is perfect in concept, but runs into problems because my
EXE files are on drives C, D, E - and my data drives are F: and beyond.

I wanted to put Cloneapp 'data files' on my F: Drive, so the backups, logs
and profiles are on in one place, and my 12 user accounts (both admin
and regular user) - per OS instance (Host OS) - can have separate AppData
spaces - and a joint 'shared' data space.

I just tested your app (latest version - 2019.01.15) - and it had some issues
with Cloneapp settings - being in different directory locations (both drive
letter and path). I read the PDF user manual - and am pretty sure I'm finding

Do registered users, with accounts, have a way to debug beta releases, report
bugs and feature failures - and get timely response and 'tester release' EXEs?

Nobody has a product like yours that I know of (I've been using Snapfiles since
it first came online - and have tons of useful utilities).

I have AOMEI, DIskGenuis, MiniTool, Macrorit and other disk apps, including
QNAP NAS and backup stuff.

But all of them together do not equal the potential in your app (for my
software development specific set of use cases).

Is there a beta release process in your dev ops?

Hi Shawn,

thank you for your great comment. To answer your question finally regarding the beta release process, I have to say no. Maybe GitHub could be great platform for that. But I do not have the time to do that right now.

Bets regards to you from Germany

Please check "Windows Mediaplayer.plg".
The registry entries are saved without errors, but for the backup of the database and the playlists you need in my opinion and tests  the following command line (for Windows 10):
File1=BackupFolder|%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player

Hi Holger,

you are right. The Songs data, Database etc. are stored in "%LocalAppData% and NOT %AppData%.
Plug-in will be updated.

Merry Christmas to you!

Great software, but I have a small problem with my self-created plg file for the Microsoft Weather app:
If I use a wildcard (*) in the app name, no backup will be performed.

Hi Holger,

I've released yesterday a new tool and Upgrad for CloneApp, called CloneApp UA. It's a small, portable and standalone program ONLY for UWP/Universal apps. It will backup the apps data of Modern UI apps.

Thank you very much for your respons!
Being able to use wildcards in paths in one of the next CloneApp-Versions would be great!
It opens up the possibility of saving and restore the settings of any Windows-App even if Microsoft changes the version number of an app in the path "%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Packages\".

Hello Holger,

a recursive search with wildcards (*) inside a path e.g. %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather*\Settings is currently not possible. This would be possible %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.BingWeather_8wekyb3d8bbwe\Settings\settings*
I will think about adding such a feature in a upcoming Version of CloneApp. You can create a custom Variable (see Docu, Chapter 3.2 Supported Variables) to make your job easier.

Hi, I hope you are well.

I have a problem with cloneapp automation. I try to use the command /CB "path" but it does not work, just open the program. What I can be doing wrong?
What's on your mind?

Hi Jose,

you are right. I could reproduce and fix this issue.

You are done with the latest Beta release.

You can use the switch e.g. /CB %UserProfile%\Desktop\Backup\

Many thanks for reporting and
.. regards

I just registered with some difficulty because I got the warning this website is not secure. I'm using Firefox along with Bitdefender Total Security.

I just learned of the existence CloneApp. Is there any way also include programs that are not currently covered by the range of plug-ins that are already with the CloneApp? This is a very impressive program!

Hello Robert,

the domain has a certificate implemented by a SSL Provider. My two other domains and are currently not digitally signed. I can assure you, that all my sites are safe and clean (

For your second question, I can refer to the extensive Documentation of CloneApp. The Application is based on an INI-Engine and highly customizable. You can add support for every program you want. Please follow the following link


Kind regards from Germany
