Can I Change the Orbx back up Folder Name?


Recommended Posts

Attached shows several backups Orbx has placed into my designated location.


Can I change the names of these folders, to fit into my specific scheme? And still be able to call on them to do a reinstall? OR Am I stuck with these names that Orbx Central give them?

See screenie. The top four are new, the ones below are my names I used for early Central 3 installs.


And, can I use my older named folders for doing a reinstall. I did not see anything on how to go about a reinstall and how the Central IDs where those files are located.

my guess would be that if you change the folder names, Orbx Central will no longer see them,

as there does not seem to be a means to manually point it to the backup, as in FTX Central.


That's why I was asking of course, it seemed to me that this would be an issue.  Which leads to the second part of my question, I have over 100 airports, every region, global, vector and more already set as backups, not including the new TEs for XP...500gigs data in 200 folders.


I would be helpful if central had an ability to reinstall from a manual location.

OK Nick, thanks for moving this forward.

I grabbed one of the new installs....EGSG which was installed via Central 4 and uninstalled and then did a reinstall....it all worked as I expect the developers had designed.


I will not try one of the old ones at this time and wait to hear more perhaps on this.
