Scheduling DisplayFusion Settings Backups

To schedule automatic DisplayFusion settings backups, follow the steps below:

  • Navigate to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Task Scheduler.
  • Select "Task Scheduler Library" from the left pane.
  • Click "Create Basic Task" from the right pane.
  • Give the task a name, i.e. "DisplayFusion Backup," then click Next.

  • Select the task schedule (Daily, Weekly, or Monthly), then click Next.

  • Choose the specifics of the schedule, then click Next.

  • Choose "Start a Program," then click Next.

  • Click Browse, then locate DisplayFusionCommand.exe (usually in "C:\Program Files (x86)\DisplayFusion\DisplayFusionCommand.exe"). In the "Add arguments" box, enter "-settingsbackup" (without the quotes), then click Next.

  • Click Finish, then test it out by selecting it in the list and clicking "Run" in the right pane. If it worked, you should have a new DisplayFusion backup file in the Documents\DisplayFusion Backups folder.

why not just have this built in so we dont have to set this up every time? also so we can use our own specified back dir/cloud..?

It's something we may add in a future version, but figured we'd share this solution in the meantime

You can easily add an advanced setting that add / remove this scheduled task automatically in windows.

In this way, basic users won't need to do the "hard steps" to backup DF settings.

Has an auto backup setting been added or still backed up when DisplayFusion updates?

Why does the options/export setting not include the monitor profiles, icons and screen saver setting. How can I back these up? Using 9.3

It should include everything. Could you send us a support request through the DisplayFusion Settings > Help > Support Request window and include a settings backup with it?
