How do I sync Filezilla site manager settings with Dropbox on Windows 7
June 14, 2013
I’ve been syncing all of my applications through dropbox lately and wanted to sync my Filezilla site manager sites. I’ve accomplished this through a three step process:
- Locate your sitemanager.xml file. If you’ve done a default installation of Filezilla, it will be in C:\Users\[your_user_name]\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\sitemanager.xml
- Move your sitemanager.xml file to dropbox. I moved mine to C:\Users\[your_user_name]\Dropbox\application-sync\Filezilla\sitemanager.xml
- Create a symbolic link from the old location to the new as follows:
mklink "C:\Users\[your_user_name]\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\sitemanager.xml" "C:\Users\[your_user_name]\Dropbox\application-sync\Filezilla\sitemanager.xml"
