Change default backup folder

Change default backup folder

Each time I start a backup from Nokia Suite, two subfolders ("Ovi" and "Nokia suite") are automatically created in "My Documents" folder.

I would like not to have these folders automatically created and select another default folder for my backups.

Thanks!

Re: Change default backup folder

Hi kunFoo ,

You can change the default backup folder in Nokia Suite -> Tools -> Options -> My Phones

There you can choose your default folder for backups.

 

Thanks,

Best regards,

Thanks taza99!!

 

I have:

 

  1. Selected a new default folder.
  2. Executed a backup in the new default folder.

But:

 

When I restart Nokia Suite and perform a new backup, an unwanted "Nokia Suite" subfolder is still created in "My Documents" (although no backup is exported to here).

 

I'm running last version o Nokia Suite (3.3.86) on Win7.

Re: Change default backup folder

Hi kunFoo,

 Yes this is a bug, Although default folder is changed, and when you again click Tools -> Backup, then Nokia Suite again creates the folder in the same previous default Nokia Suite folder.

 Thank you for pointing this out.

Re: Change default backup folder

Hi kunFoo,

I could not reproduce the issue with these steps:

* Go to Tools -> Options -> My devices

* Change the backup folder

* Click OK

* Start backup from Tools -> Backup
