How to Transfer Downloads Made with 4K Video Downloader & 4K YouTube to MP3
You know that 4K Video Downloader and 4K YouTube to MP3 save media in the folder specifically made on your PC or Mac by our apps. To transfer all the content to a new device, simply paste that folder into your new computer.
For that, you can use a USB flash drive or cloud storage. Here are other ways to transfer files from one computer to another.
After you transfer the folder to the new device, launch the application there and activate the licence key if you have one. If you’ve lost your licence key, you can retrieve it or contact us at email@example.com.
Subscriptions you’ve made in 4K Video Downloader are not transferred automatically. To transfer them to a new device, export the subscriptions on your old computer and then import them on a new one.
To export the subscriptions, on the main app menu, find File -> Export Subscriptions. Then launch 4K Video Downloader on a new computer and export them following the same path.
Please note that the download history is attached to a certain device. It’s impossible to transfer it to a new computer. If you decide to, go to File -> Export Downloads and then import them in the app on another device, the files will be redownloaded.
