Which Malwarebytes' folders and/or files to restore with OS restoration ?

Recommended Posts

When we restore an old OS's backup image, we restore all our softwares as they were when we did the just restored image and this applies also to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.


I would like to know which Malwarebytes' folders and/or files would need to be also restored in order to get Malwarebytes exactly as it were just before the restoration.


There is an excellent free software named "CloneApp" (http://www.mirinsoft.com/) which serves to restore all the settings of our installed softwares in the case of an OS's restoration that proposes to backup this folder in order to restore all the settings : "%ProgramData%\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\Configuration".


I have the feeling that it is not a good idea to try restoring all the contents of this particular folder.


I think that restoring these elements would be all what is needed :

Sorry, I have posted the previous comment before it was fully completed...


I think that restoring these elements would be all what is needed :


    -C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\exclusions.dat

    -C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\Configuration\scheduler.conf

    -C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\Configuration\settings.conf


Does someone has an opinion on this matter ?


Thank you very much for your help.
