How do I move my FTP sessions from AbsoluteFTP®
to SecureFX® 3.x?

The following steps describe how to migrate your FTP sessions from AbsoluteFTP to SecureFX 3.x.

  1. Copy the configuration files for AbsoluteFTP into a new folder. These files are called AbsoluteFTP.idx and AbsoluteFTP.dat. The location of these files can be found in AbsoluteFTP by selecting "Session Database Location" from the "Options" menu inside AbsoluteFTP.
  2. Once copied into the new folder, rename the files to SecureFX.idx and SecureFX.dat.
  3. Change the configuration of SecureFX so that it uses this new folder with the newly renamed files as its configuration folder. This can be done by starting SecureFX and browsing to that folder's location in the "Configuration folder" data field on the "General" category of the "Global Options" dialog.

SecureFX will need to be closed and reopened for this change to take affect. When it reopens, a migration wizard will be started that will convert these settings into the new format used by SecureFX 3.x.
