How to backup settings,packages and every thing


I am using windows 8.1 and I want to format my pc so how do I backup all my packages,settings and every thing


Copy your .atom folder to your backup device. There are a lot of tiny folders in children of packages/, so this might take a while.

A more efficient way of doing it is to copy everything except packages/, and use a package sync package to tell your new setup to download all of the same packages.


can u share a link to that folder


No, because it’s on your computer, in your user folder.


where is .atom folder


In your user folder: C:\Users\Mandar\.atom.


Ok Thanks got it …!!!
