Hi, i reset my computer and i did not save a settings file but i do have a drive image so i can access the raw files.

is there any way to get the Heidisql setting and server logins from file/folder view directly?

I recall there are tools which allow you to open these files and export keys from it.

You will need to export the following key (+ subkeys) to a .reg file, and import that file afterwards with HeidiSQL:
