Backup DropDMG configurations

I have several custom configurations saved for various backups. I’m getting a new computer and want to move the configurations over. How can I do this?

If you use Apple’s Migration Assistant, everything should be transferred automatically. The configurations are stored in DropDMG’s preferences file:


and the passphrases (for encrypted backups) are stored in the keychain.

With DropDMG 3.0 the configurations are now stored in the folder:

/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/DropDMG/Configurations/
