ET-Updater configuration is held in “.cfg” files. You can create many of these, and switch between them for different applications if necessary.
Open an existing .cfg file. The most recently used .cfg file is automatically loaded when the application is started.
Prepare for a new .cfg file – clearing out all sources, units and destinations.
Save changes to the current .cfg file. You should use this after changing settings to ensure they are preserved in the event of the program exiting unexpectedly for any reason.
Save the current .cfg file with a new name.
