If you host a TeamSpeak server and need to transfer everything over to a different machine, you may find that simply transferring the TeamSpeak program folder does not copy the needed server data. If you have been hosting for a long time and you have many specific settings that you do not want to have to do over again, you'll likely want to transfer the same settings over into the new machine. Fortunately, there is a way to do so.
