    Server crashed - what files do I need off the old drive??

    I know I've seen this posted before, but for the life of me I can't find it. So, my apologies in advance for the redundancy.

    As the title says - my Homeseer server died a miserable death last night. I'm standing up a NUC as we speak with Win10Pro and will load everything on it. My questions is - if I can still access the files on the old server HDD, what files do I need to copy over to bring all of my configuration, events, devices, etc over, or am I screwed? I thought I had a backup of everything, but I can't find that either...

    Pretty much the contents of the C:\Program Files (x86)\HomeSeer HS3 folder. Do a manual install of HS first, then copy everything over top and you should be good to go. This is assuming both are 64 bit machines. If your previous one was 32 bit and in the C:\Program Files\HomeSeer HS3 folder, it's similar, but you need to find any hard coded references to the old folder structure and fix that before running it.
