This software stores user definitions and settings for each identify (referred to as IdentX here) in two places:

  1. File system: Users/username/AppData/Roaming/ (V3)/Console/IdentX
  2. Registry: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ (V3)\Console\IdentX


File System

The AppData folder is hidden by default in Windows File Explorer, and has three hidden sub-folders: Local, LocalLow, and Roaming.

For more information about AppData/Roaming let's use Google !


This folder (%appdata%) contains data that can move with your user profile from PC to PC.

These files can safely be moved between identities and copied to another computer. The filename should be self-explanatory. The list below contains the most common files found in this folder. According to Microsoft the main purpose of the AppData/Romaing folder is to store "Application-specific data, such as a custom dictionary for a word processing program. Application vendors decide what data to store in this directory".

Files prefixed with ✔ can be copied to another computer. Those not prefixed with ✔ are only relevant to the host computer.

Same Computer

If performing a backup and restore on the same computer then save all files to a ZIP archive and restore to the original location.

Different Computer

Only backup and restore the files marked with a ✔ as other files will be host-dependent. This is not citical - you can backup and restore all files but some will refer to hardware and/or file locations not configured on the new computer.
