Preference Manager

Trash, backup, lock and restore your NLE preferences
"Easily back up the preference files for your editing program of choice with Preference Manager, a simple and free application designed to automatically backup your files for whenever you might need them."
Preference files store information about user preferences, window layouts, toolbar placements and launch settings. Sometimes these can become corrupted, causing problems. Preference Manager allows you to trash corrupted preferences and keep backups of working preference files in order to quickly restore your settings.



Reset your editing application back to its factory defaults to help solve problems.

Backup and restore

Store copies of your settings, keyboard layouts, window layouts and more. These can be restored back to your system or used to sync settings to other computers.

Keep a stable set of preferences backed up so you can restore them in the event of a problem, without having to reset everything back to the defaults.


Lock settings to prevent others from changing them.


Automatically save copies of your preferences weekly so you can restore back to a working copy even if you forget to backup.

Pro Maintenance Tools extras

Pro Maintenance Tools users can schedule backups, batch backup/restore over a network and initiate a backup or restore just by pressing a button.
