Windows Live Writer Backup v3 Released – Don’t leave your WLW without it… - Live Writer Backup Released

“… However, this is something that could benefit all you bloggers out there. …

But then I started to get emails and reports that there were a couple of problems with the program, most notably from people who were using XP Service Pack 3 or Vista x64. The backup functionality stopped working for them completely, which posed somewhat of a problem. So I decided that it was probably time for a full rewrite of the program (it was needed). So that’s what I did.

The latest version (now 3.0!) was fully rewritten from scratch. The only code still in the program from previous versions is the code that makes it backward compatible with the wlwbackup files from earlier versions. The UI whilst still looking similar is now done in WPF, which means it has some nice little touches to it. Having had a pretty successful [private] beta period and an even more successful Release Candidate, I am now happy to release the final version.



Scott Lovegrove, the WLW Ninja Master, was released v3 (Windows Live Writer Backup - Version 3.0 Final) of his very cool WLW Backup utility.

As you add all those very cool WLW plug-ins, as you create all those posts, as you tweak the settings, think about what a pain it would be to have to do all of that over again. Yeah, icky…  Well WLW Backup utility to the rescue! Backup your WLW stuff and it will keep it all safe for you.

Oh yeah, and the C# source is available if you’re interested in seeing the magic behind the curtain.  :)
