I am looking to see if anyone has successfully figured out a way to manually backup and restore Bluestacks instances. I am not asking about Bluestacks backup and restore capability as this does not do individual instances - it's all or nothing - individual instances are not currently supported.

However, regardless of supportability, I have a need to migrate some instances across computers. There are a few configuration items that would have to be addressed:

  1. port number conflict potential
  2. bluestacks.conf changes
  3. potential change in directory at target

I was wondering if anyone has attempted to execute this effort and whether you've been successful. Am I missing anything else that could be dependent?

Many thanks!

  • It does not help but thank you. As mentioned, I want to cherry pick the instances to move to and from PCs. BS method is only all or none approach. Commented Sep 4, 2023 at 12:04
