Default Restoring back slows down JD on new PC - will copying JD folder work?

Hi,
Have been using JD for a long time but I faced a lot of problems while getting JD2 to work on my new computer:

1 - I got the backup file from old computer - but it slowed JD on the new one.
2 - I tried to load the backup file on various versions of JD - but it slowed them all
3 - I tried changing / replacing the 'cfg' file and also changing the xmsx to '1g' but nothing worked

Then I uninstalled JD and I finally copy-pasted the entire 'JDownloader 2.0' folder from C drive/users/username/AppData/local to the same location on the new PC.

Surprisingly, it worked alright.

I just want to know if I can continue like this as I don't want to lose my download list. Will it cause any issues in Windows 10 OS.

Also, I have MCAfee Anti virus with Firewall on new PC. Old one had Kaspersky Total security. Would that have caused the slowness in JD?

Please share your expert opinions.

Thanks.

How many links do you have in list? How large are the downloadlist.zip or linkcollector.zip files?

You don't have to copy/paste the complete folder. the cfg folder is enough. do not merge but overwrite/replace the existing one.
But yes, you can also just copy/move the complete Installation folder. JDownloader is portable.

My first guess is that 1GB max memory is not enough to load the lists. You can check about dialog. In doubt please provide a screenshot of the about dialog

My downloadlist.zip (latest version) is about 55 MB and linkcollector.zip is 39KB.

i had tried replacing the entire CFG folder but did not help.

And as you said, copying the full installation folder is fine, i don't need to worry about anything now. Thanks for making JDownloader portable
