Can I keep my settings when updating to a new version?

Yes, you can install a new version over an already installed version. The installation program will keep/upgrade your settings.

If you want to backup your settings, please choose File, Save configuration. To restore the backup, you have to unzip the backup archive to %APPDATA%\Mp3tag which usually expands to the following directories
  • Windows XP
    C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Mp3tag
  • Windows Vista
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag
  • Windows 7
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag
