Continue with an excisting cue when reinstalling sabnzbd

Hi,

I’m about to do a fresh install of my OS. Afterwards, when reinstalling sabnzbd, I’d like to continue with my existing cue.
It still holds some 20 downloads (paused), that aren’t d’loaded because of a lack of time & diskspace.
Is that possible? Like copy the incomplete folder or so..?

thanks!

Yes, you should copy the whole SABnzbd settings/admin folder (https://sabnzbd.org/wiki/advanced/directory-setup)
And then also copy the whole Incomplete Folder.
But make sure that all your paths stay exactly the same! It will expect all the directories to be where it was before.

Thanks safihre. So, on Mac, after installing sabnzbd, you mean I should replace this folder "~/Library/Application Support/SABnzbd/admin" with the one from the old install, and also replace the incomplete folder?

Yep! And they should be in the same place.
Probably just good to keep the whole directory (not just admin):
~/Library/Application Support/SABnzbd
