I'm using ClickOnce to deploy (install/update), which also handles settings. I'm not sure what causes it to reset the settings. I am considering using the registry for settings instead.

An old naming convention (which does not match the naming conventions I have in the settings) keeps getting applied. So I tried the moving all the isos to a different folder, using the source --> clear all to clear all of the cached analysis. After re-analyzing in the new location, it still used the old naming convention.
This is because BatchMKV will recognize a source even if it has been moved, to allow you to move a source without losing changes made to titles/tracks. You can always right-click a title and choose "Apply Default Title Settings" which will apply the title settings based on the current settings.

I'm not sure what would cause this, I'm not able to replicate this error.

In the store.bmkv file in the AppData/Roaming/BatchMKV folder.

The path is not the same on all machines (it's in a subfolder of AppData\Local\Apps\2.0), so the easiest is probably to search for the file BatchMKV.exe.config. It may find multiple copies, the one most recently changed is likely the one you're looking for.

You can right-click a title and choose "Apply Default Title Settings" which will apply the title settings based on the current settings.
If you want to clear all cached data, just delete/move/rename the store.bmkv file (while BatchMKV is not running).
ktverdun wrote:And is there any way to backup existing settings external to the application so that I can easily restore them after an new version is released if this happens again?
You can copy the BatchMKV.exe.config file. I haven't tried restoring settings using this so I cannot guarantee it works. Again, I'm considering switching to the registry to store settings.

I'll put it on the list.
