Use NPP accross multiple PCs

  • Hi all

    I have been using NPP for years, and I love the session backup. I, like many others out there, use this feature to store notes.
    Session backup is stored in AppData\Roaming\Notepad++, which - in theory - should allow auto syn across all my machines while logged in with the same user. Alas, this doesn’t happen.

    I tried to modify the autoback up folder from settings to make it point to my OneDrive folder, but it is does not allow editing.

    Any one can help with a solution or a work around?

    one possible solution might be creating a link.
    Stop npp. Goto your AppData\Roaming\Notepad++ directory.
    rename original backup directroy. Create a link pointing to your onedrive
    path but with the name backup.
    Can’t test, as I don’t have windows nor onedrive but in theory
    it should be possible.


  • Thank you Claudia,
    That’s a solid idea, I’ll give it a try.
