Bug: The Bookmarks get deleted when the Host Name is changed

Hi,

I had lot of bookmarks on my AWS EC2 machine which I connected via Port 22 on WinSCP.
But as I have the dynamic IP which gets changed on each STOP/START of machine.

So after about a month of adding that Server configuration now the IP is changed, and when I updated that IP in Winscp, all my bookmarks are gone.
Any way to retrieve the bookmarks?

And you can take this as suggestion for helping people that - Save the Winscp Bookmarks using some internal Winscp ID, not against the Hostname/IP address (as it could change with time).

Thanks.

Re: I didn't find any bookmark in the registry

Are you even using Registry to store your configuration? Don't you use an INI file? If not, then the bookmarks must be there. If they are not, you do not have any stored bookmarks. WinSCP never deletes any bookmarks on its own.
