Transferring Data when Reimaging or Replacing a Computer

If you re-image a user's computer or migrate a user to a new computer, you should ensure that you preserve the OnePager charts and templates that they have created. How to do this depends on the version and edition of OnePager the user is running.

All Editions of OnePager, Versions 5.2 and Later

Locate the user's OnePager documents folder, noting that if the user has multiple editions of OnePager installed, they may have more than one set of folders:

  • Documents\OnePager Bundle
  • Documents\OnePager Pro
  • Documents\OnePager Express

Copy the contents of the above documents folder(s) to a safe place on the user's new computer or network. You may also want to search the user's computer for OnePager's native file types (.tam, .tat, .tap, and .tas) to see if they have saved OnePager files anywhere else beyond the standard location.

OnePager Pro or Express Editions, Versions 5.1 and Earlier

In these older versions of OnePager, data are stored in a single database file whose name is of the form DefaultDB*.t_d and whose location is stored in the registry:

  • OnePager Pro: HKCU\Software\Chronicle Graphics\OnePager\CGDataPath.
  • OnePager Express: HKCU\Software\Chronicle Graphics\OnePager Express\CGDataPath.

This database location is in the Windows user profile by default.

When you re-image the user's computer or migrate the user to a new computer, it is very important that the database file be copied to the same folder in the new image or new computer. In addition, before re-imaging or replacing the user's computer, we strongly recommend that the user take a few seconds to make a backup of their OnePager data. This is done by launching OnePager and clicking File > Backup > For archive, which will produce a TAD file that can be imported into OnePager after the computer has been re-imaged or after the user gets their new computer.
