To find where your resources are, both common and personal;

From within e-Sword main menu go to Options -> Resources. There you will see the resource path at the bottom of that window.

If memory serves the journal files are saved as journals.jnlx, (Journal notesand study.notx ( study notes) if those are the notes you are looking for.



If you did much "marking up" like highlighting, underlining and so on you might look for markup.ovlx.  


I'm not certain how well those travel/translate, but it is worth a shot.





Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)

"Defenders of the faith are inclined to be bitter until they learn to walk in the light of the Lord. When you have learned to walk in the light of the Lord, bitterness and contention are impossible." --Oswald Chambers, in Biblical Psychology from The Quotable Oswald Chambers.

Hello All,


Am looking for a way to backup all of the highlights and notes I have made in e-Sword 11.2.2.  I have searched for a way to backup or export within the program.  Have not found it yet.


In the mean time I just copy these 3 directories to my NAS.  Then I have a daily backup of my NAS to my iDrive account.


C:\Users\"user name"\Documents\e-Sword

C:\Users\"user name"\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword

C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword


This seems a little awkward and stilted given the elegance of the program.  Would there be a more knowledgeable user that can confirm 1. Where the highlights are stored, 2.  Is there a more elegant or less time consuming method of backing up.


Thanks in Advance


David Harms
