    So long story short my laptop (Windows, where I've ran FL for about a month) got rained on and is not working properly. Until I get a new laptop i'm going to use my girlfriends Mac to run everything from. Once I dl the software & re-input my settings, can I just pick up where I left or will I need to start slow again? I'm only running 1 account if that helps, just don't want to potentially run into bans (which I haven't received any up to this point)...

    You will need to start over since all the saved settings were in your rained laptop.

    FL was developed for PC only. However, there is a tutorial to run it with mac. I think it's on their support site for a how to or you can search a few pages back in this forum section.

    You will need to contact FL support to have your registration reset since you will be installing on a different machine. The license agreement is for only one install.

    I am running FL on my Mac. Just download it and install it then run it on your Mac. You just need to reset your license.

    I would start off slow to "warm up" the account. Do this for a few days or a week. Then slowly ramp it up.

    Maybe I'll just wait a few days then until I get my new one. Once I get a new laptop will I still have to re-create my settings (if it's also a PC)? I dl'd the program to my external hard drive as well so hoping I can just launch it from there when the new one's live

    The only way to have your original settings back and what you have been doing is to copy the db(hidden) and the projects folder from your old laptop to the new one. If you can't access them, you will need to recreate all projects I am afraid.

    Follow Liker support advises to do a backup of these folders in an event you cannot access your pc.

    Projects
    %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Follow Liker


    DB (saved performed actions,etc)
    %appdata%\Follow Liker\mdb\bin\data
    %appdata%\Follow Liker\mdb\bin\db_dump

    I actually wrote up a how-to using Windows built-in software call Robocopy.

    listen bro, take this from someone who learned the hard way. Sign up for a google coud VPS free 90 day trial and put FL on there, I've already lost a computer aswell becasue of FL, I woke up one morning to check the bot and my computer said "missing operating system" after running it for months on end it simply fried it. If you are going to continue using a computer make sure your specs suit the amount of accounts you're running.

    FL fried your pc? How many projects/accs were you running?
