HI I am using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 15.4 and would like to know what are the important bits in the Dragon user profiles folder.


Mines are saved in C:\ProgramData\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking15\Users\KennyBhambha\


but I want to go in details and wish to know what are the important files and folders, see I wish to create a script which will back up those selected important files/folders to another location. 

Are all files within the profile folder necessary to restore a users profile? Are there any files within this folder that we can skip backing up?

Hope to hear more.

                   Welcome (See Mission Statement)


If you are using Dragon 15.4 you are either using an out of date version of DMPE 4 or DPG 15. In either event, they are both out of date and need updating. Let us know and we will send you a patch. Also note that after you update to Ver. 15.5 or 15.6 (depending on your application), your entire KennyBhambha folder will be transferred to the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Nuance\NS15\Users\[your username]. Back to your original question…

Importing and exporting your entire user profile is supposed to work but in our opinion, isn't quite bulletproof. We prefer going old-school. Your 
Dragon user KennyBhambha folder has everything and even includes a backup of your profile but if you try to save space by copying your “current” folder, you can run into a few missing pieces. We recommend taking the path of least resistance by simply copying KennyBhambha folder. We backup our user profile to the cloud every day and to an external hard drive once a month.

PS: We recommend updating your forum profile because generic terms like Dragon NaturallySpeaking 15 don't give us enough information. It's better to go with more familiar terms like DPI 15.3, DPI 15.6, DPG 15.6 or DMPE 4.3
