    OK, so I went ahead and made a full copy SB to have 2 instances.

    But for some reason, if I load up the 2nd instance; harvest new proxies and import a list of URLs to use in the Back Link checker, when I go to the Backlink Checker and select 'Load URLs From' > Harvester, for some reason it's loading up the URLs in the Instance 1 harvester and not sure why it's doing it.

    Not only that but it also uses the proxies from Instance 1 as well.

    Anybody else come across this problem? Seems strange as I copied the entire SB folder to create Scrapebox 2 and then loaded it up and did the changes. I've gone into the folder of the 2nd instance and loaded the exe file so not sure how it's linking to the first instance of SB.

    There is nothing you can do about that. I noticed the same a long time ago.
    The backlink checker add on will only grab the urls from the first instance, doesn't matter if it runs from a different folder.
    I suggest emailing support about this, should be an easy fix

    I've just mailed them, so hopefully will get a fix for it sometime soon.

    I think it happens with proxies too - the 2nd instance, uses the 1st instance proxies in the Backlink Checker.

    Not sure if that's the case when posting/commenting though.

    No that is not the case with commenting. It only happens with add ons because they run stand alone.

    You can run the second instance from second administrator account. It will solve the problem.

    So this problem still hasn't been fixed?
