How do I sync Filezilla site manager settings with Dropbox on Windows 7

June 14, 2013

I’ve been syncing all of my applications through dropbox lately and wanted to sync my Filezilla site manager sites. I’ve accomplished this through a three step process:

  1. Locate your sitemanager.xml file.  If you’ve done a default installation of Filezilla, it will be in C:\Users\[your_user_name]\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\sitemanager.xml
  2. Move your sitemanager.xml file to dropbox.  I moved mine to C:\Users\[your_user_name]\Dropbox\application-sync\Filezilla\sitemanager.xml
  3. Create a symbolic link from the old location to the new as follows:
mklink "C:\Users\[your_user_name]\AppData\Roaming\FileZilla\sitemanager.xml" "C:\Users\[your_user_name]\Dropbox\application-sync\Filezilla\sitemanager.xml"
