How to backup Snippely information?

I just love this minimalistic and easy to use program that helps you to have your most used snippets in one place. I have written about it more on the article about other snippet programs. However, after some time it got to my mind that there are not any backup functionality. In my opinion, it is a big disadvantage of this program, but you can create a backup manually.

I have found that Snippely saves its database in catalog on Windows 7: C:\Users\{Your user name}\AppData\Roaming and you can make the copy of this file for some later use. I have tried to reinstall fresh copy of the program and the backup worked just fine.

Just do not forget to create those backups constantly!

What to do if Snippely opens but does not run?

I have already written about my favorite snippets tools Snippely, however I have had a strange bug recently. I opened the Snippely and it was showed on taskbar, but I could not get to my snippets or open the dialog box of this program.

After some research I have found that you need to press alt + space after you select the icon from the taskbar and then choose maximize from the pop up menu. That’s all – you can now use your snippets program as usually.

I hope this helps someone having the same issue.

So I have decided to find some applications to help you better manage code snippets and fasten their usage.
