How to backup Filezilla site manager?

If you plan to reinstall Windows or move to another PC, you can backup all your websites from “site manager” and not have to recreate them later.


Open Filezilla, File > Export > check “Export Site Manager entries” > ok > save the xml file on your desktop.

To import your site manager, simply click on File > Import > locate and select the xml file (the backup).

If you have like 40-100 websites in your site manager, it would be really painful to have to recreate all of them by entering the hostname, username and password.
