About Connected Home Device Name backup


Recommended Posts

  • ESET Insiders

Hi, 

I Just wanna know that if there's any way to take a backup of al the devices name that connected to my network & all those I named in & under ESET Connected Home.

 

If I take the backup from here (See attached Screenshot), then that'd be taking all the devices name backup (bind with respective MAC ids) or not.

 

PS: Already tired, & it seems backing up from this option only backup eset advance settings options, not backing up the device names.

 

Posting here for confirmation from other users.

If you want to temporarily uninstall the program and keep CHM data, back up "C:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET Security\homenet.dat" in safe mode. I for one don't see any other reason to back up this file.

Thanks @Marcosbut IMO, this should've been implimented under settings backup & resote feature, so that the user don't have to manually copy-paste everytime after reinstalling ESET. Can you or anyone pass this suggestion to the dev? Or where can I post this so that the dev can see this?

Only the configuration is backed up during upgrade. What you can do is contact your local ESET distributor to file a market requirement. With many users demanding such feature and if evaluated as reasonable and feasible, there's a good chance it could be implemented in future versions.

I thought this eset forum would be the best place to share any suggestion/feedback/complaint.

Hey @Marcos, I backed up that 'homenet.dat' file as you told, but after a reinstall, not able to paste that over there i.e. C:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET Security\. Any idea how to do that? Should I have to paste that in safe mode as well?
