Backup Putty Saved sessions

Putty stores the saved sessions on Windows in “Regeddit” Registry

To backup the registry, run the following command in a Windows powershell:

reg export HKCU\Software\SimonTatham ([Environment]::GetFolderPath("Desktop") + "\putty.reg")

This will save a file on your desktop called “putty.reg”


To import the backed up file

– Double click the .reg file to open it and add it to registry

– Or using powershell, run:
reg import putty.reg
