Which files are used to create the backup?

The Import/Export configuration feature described here always builds a backup of two files even though you may see only one file in the save or open dialogs.

When you export the configuration backup, the dialog lets you choose a single VTP filename to save as, but it also knows to automatically export in the persistent .cfg file with the same name.

When you import the configuration backup, the dialog lets you choose the VTP file, but it also knows to automatically import in the .cfg file with the same name.

The files end with ".vtp" and ".cfg" filename folder. The name before the filename extension will generated with a name that looks like this:

  • exported_vtube_configiration_ 20160205_08_45_23.vtp
  • exported_vtube_configiration_ 20160205_08_45_23.cfg

The name includes the date and time encoded into the name.
