Couldn't restore default setting

#1 Post by mgroen » 18.02.2020, 12:51

I just tried to restore settings, but this is prevented.

scenario:
- In FC -> Tools -> Restore all settings
- popup is displayed with location of default settings. I press OK
- Another popup is displayed , with confirmation to overwrite. I press Yes
- Windows message is displayed:

- I have option to skip (Overslaan), or Cancel (Annuleren). Both options do not lead to overwrite the ssettings

Also tried the same starting FC in Admin mode. Also got same issue.

I'm not sure where is the problem, you can try to change the location of the settings folder in Settings > Start program > Configuration folder.

Try to use other folder than "Program files".

The issue is not where the source of the settings folder. The problem is is that when restoring the files, a message is displayed with the message that the source files have same name as the destination.
And that in the warning message there is no option to override files with the same name. I think this is a message from Windows, not from FC (but I am not sure). Because of lacking option to override files with same name, there is no way to restore settings this way.
