How to copy a PGP private key along with its passphrase to an installation of Robo-FTP on another machine
This article is written for Robo-FTP 3.10.14. The steps may vary for older or newer versions.
It is possible to export/import individual private and public PGP keys from the PGP Keys section of the Configurator. However, this will only move the key, not the associated passphrase.
In order to move the keys along with their passphrases, you should perform a settings export from the Settings section of the Configurator.
Note that if the passphrase was stored in the system-wide settings, you must choose "System" when you launch the Configurator.
If the settings were stored in a particular user's profile, you must be logged in as that user when you launch the Configurator (you can choose either Current User or System when launching the Configurator in this case).
You can then import settings on the new machine.
IMPORTANT: The above instructions for exporting/importing settings only apply to moving settings between the same major version of Robo-FTP, such as when you have version 3.10.x on both machines. If you need to move between different major versions, such as between 3.9.x and 3.10.x, you will need to follow the instructions in the Migration Guide that is on the download page of Robo-FTP.com for instructions on migrating settings between versions.
