How do I use snapshots in Fences?
Posted by Aaron Klenke on 21 February 2012 06:03 PM

In Fences you can back up and restore snapshots of your layouts.

For Fences 2:

-Right click on the desktop and select "Configure Fences..."

-Click on "Layout and snapping" on the left hand side of the configuration window that appears.

-Select a snapshot you wish to revert to. A preview window will appear showing you what the desktop will look like.

-Click Restore Snapshot to revert the desktop to this preview.

-If you wish to take a snapshot instead, use the 'Take Snapshot' button.


For Fences 1:

Open the configuration application and select "Tools"

You can create a snapshot by selecting the button.

Select a snapshot to preview it.  If it is the one you want, select the "Restore Snapshot" button.

You can also delete snapshots here.

If you do not want to create snapshots you can do that on the previous page.


General info: 

If you want to move settings from one machine to another you can do that via the snapshot system.

Simply copy the snapshots from one machine to the other, then restore the snapshots

Snapshots are stored in the following directories:

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Stardock\Fences\Backups
Vista/7: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Stardock\Fences\Backups

You will need to replace USERNAME with your user account name on your PC.
