You can find the settings and cache files from the swift `File` menu

The path is something like here:

- `C:\Users\JoeDoe\AppData\Local\org.swift-project` - If you want to backup all your swift data then backup this directory

  (backup swift).

- Then some \“magic name\” representing your swift installation, like

  `H%3A%2FProjects%2FQtBuilds%2Fbuild-swift-Desktop_Qt_5_11_1_MSVC2017_64bit2-Debug%2Fout%2Fdebug%2Fbin` +
  `settings` or `data` (caches)

- Each installation of swift has its own data data. So you can run as

  many swift installations as you like. If you look at the directory
  screenshot, you can see that there is **one swift data directory as
  per swift installation.**

- If you want to temp. reset to default settings, you can just rename

  the directory to a new name
  `..._MSVC2017_64bit2-Debug%2Fout%2Fdebug%2Fbin.bak`, note the
  [.bak]{.title-ref} at the end. With the next start *swift* creates a
  new directory with default settings/data. By renaming the
  [bak]{.title-ref} file as it was, you will get the settings/data

- swift versions are distinguished by their corresponding install

  directory. So if you override an existing installation (same
  directory), it will use the same data. If you install to another
  place, it will use another data directory.

- If you need to copy data among multiple swift installations you can

  use the wizard, see `copyswiftdata`{.interpreted-text role="ref"}

- See also: `findlogfiles`{.interpreted-text role=“ref”} - To reset the screen size, see also `resetscreen`{.interpreted-text


Windows Registry (Windows only)

Under Windows *swift* windows geometry data are stored in the registry, see also `resetscreen`{.interpreted-text role=“ref”} .


On other OS you can find the corresponding data here: <>
