Migrate Alfred settings/snippets after clean install of OS X?

Recommended Posts

I need to reinstall El Capitan on my iMac (primary Alfred computer). It is currently syncing Alfred settings to Dropbox, but once I do a fresh install of OS X, the "primary" computer that Alfred was installed on will no longer exist. 


After I reinstall Alfred on the fresh copy of OS X, how do I import/restore settings/snippets, and how do I assign it as the "primary" install of Alfred?

I should know since I did this three times in the past year.... as I recall I just pointed the new installation at the existing sync folder on dropbox (obviously you need to reinstall the dropbox client first and let it finish syncing). I'd make a backup first and just try that. I certainly don't recall any problems or needing to do any additional configuration.
