with foobar open, hold shift and click file>browse configuration folder. (that's assuming WINE can handle the command to open whatever file browser it uses)

Foobar2000 directory stores all necessary information?

If it's in portable mode, yes.


huh.gif So, where and what are these files? This is because I don't have mine installed as portable.


Got it rolleyes.gif

To properly understand this plugin, the opening should say "Works better if you have foobar2000 installed as 'portable'"

Now the contents of my .zip backup works when I extracted it to my foobar2000 directory.

IIRC playlists and PlaybackStatistics.dat entries are now obsolete.


How can I backup the playback statistics from foo_playcount? Most importantly how can I found out how to backup a particular item?

**UPDATE**
I found out that these correlate to foobar2000's directory. As directories themselves or files.ext. This is what you call control! loving it!

Not really. The only reason the description was inadequate for you is because you're not using the plugin.

In which case it helps to understand that since Vista (some 8 years ago), by default Windows expects configuration information to be saved to the user profile folder.

In the case of foobar2000, it's:
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\

where xxx is your username.

The portable installation of foobar2000, where everything is in the program folder, is not normal. I don't think it's normal for any modern OS, actually.

That's so plausible, I can't believe it.

I like to have everything in one folder, easier to manage with portable.

When using Windows' own management it can sometimes end up either in roaming, local, or documents.
And you may not know what the folder is called, some use their company name, other the product name.

Same, I love the idea of everything in one folder. The only reason for it to be in window's configuration 'appdata" is for registry purposes (shell link, shortcuts, etc), you know the useless stuff that windows apparently thinks is important dry.gif .
