Topic "Split history from config"

Author Message


WinSCP uses a config.ini file. We notice not only configuration is stored in here, also usage history.
Would be useful to see a split of config and history.
This would allow us to share config between users.
I see a config file a a much more static file. Only specific settings to be stored. A history file will change on every use to store the latest usage etc. The config should change unless configuration has been changed by the user...

Thanks for your suggestion. Will think it about it.

Though it's not just the usage history that changes in each run.
Also there are many settings that share badly. Like like Window sizes, which make sense with a certain screen resolution and DPI only.
