what files should I keep from old installation, where are my current settings stored?

I just want to keep my backup settings, and copy these settings to new installed bvbackup.

Thank you

Added basic support for app's configuration self-backup.

This is requires one-time manual configuration to set the backup directory and then the app will automatically maintain a copy of all configuration files there.

Enabling this feature requires a manual .ini edit at the moment, but it's very simple.
a) Shutdown Bvckup
b) Open %LocalAppData%\Bvckup2\bvckup2.ini in Notepad
c) Add line "self_backup <the-config-backup-directory>" without quotes, e.g.

self_backup  C:\Temp\BvckupConfigBackup

d) Save the .ini, exit Notepad, start Bvckup

This will work, but it's a bit backwards. There's a simpler way -
